The EUCLES (European Cluster Labelling Excellence Structure) association has been created in December 2020 with the objective to gradually take over the labelling system currently operated by ESCA (European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis).


Managed by clusters associations for European clusters with the approval of the European Commission, this newly created structure will develop further and modernise the existing system.


Please be aware that the transition is currently in progress and that you will of course be informed of its status, both here and on the ESCA website.

Thank you to note that this does not imply a major change for clusters as the labelling process will remain the same, only the contact process to request a labelling will change.


Looking forward to fruitful collaborations,

The EUCLES team
