Clusters

In addition to an association with a promotional mission, Lake Geneva basin industry can count on four thematic communication platforms, called clusters, to stimulate its fabric and promote its dynamism beyond the borders. Originating from a sectoral promotional strategy initiated by the heads of the public economy departments of western Switzerland (CDEP-SO) and supported by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), their catalyst and framework is a deeply rooted industrial culture and optimal conditions (cf. areas of excellence).

Event and publishing related activities

To fulfil their mission, these clusters respond to the essential needs of entrepreneurs in terms of networking, innovation, financing and partnership. As key regional contacts, they offer visibility, develop synergies, encourage and focus on applied innovation, facilitate and promote access to the industrial networks, entry into the international markets, and connections with financing partners. These actions are supported and made possible thanks to the organisation of events and business trips as well as the publication of documents, the organisation and management of Internet portals and the development of dedicated search engines.
