Casablanca, 9-12 April 2019: Feedback on TechDays
THE NEXT SOCIETY and the European Commission, through the European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP), with the support of StartUp Morocco and ANIMA Investment Network, organized from 9 to 12 April in Casablanca, the First Edition of #TechDays. This event brought together cluster managers from Europe, the Middle East and North Africa region.
43 clusters accepted the invitation: 25 of which are located in Europe, 18 in South of the Mediterranean. They exchanged in B to B subjects they sought to learn more about or topics in the perspective of new markets to develop. Interestingly, more than 300 appointments were made during this meeting.
This first Matchmaking operation, the first of its kind, will lead to regular interesting follow-ups and continuous work.
Paulette Pommier, associate expert of IPEMED, has presented her recent study, on Clusters in Maghreb. The participants, representatives of clusters from both the North and the South of the Mediterranean, discussed and contributed to the reflection on the necessary consolidation of clusters in the region and their reconciliation.
