European cluster collaboration platform project logo

CECIL was one of the 6 Cluster Excellence projects financed by the European Commission and the only one focused on Digital Creative Industries.

The Cluster Excellence Programme of the European Commission is aimed at strengthening the cluster management excellence in the EU as a way to provide more professional business services to European SMEs through clusters and therefore contribute to the development of more world-class clusters in the EU.

The overall objective of the CECIL project was therefore to strengthen cluster management excellence, and hence, top professional cluster services for the Digital Creative Industries, where the role of clusters is particularly relevant as drivers of innovation and competitiveness.
