Cluster Excellence Expert Group

Assessment results will be presented to the Cluster Excellence Expert Group (CEEG) for a final decision whether a cluster organisation will be awarded with the Gold Label of the European Cluster Excellence Initiative. The CEEG acts as an international board ensuring neutrality and international recognition of any awarded labels. Cluster organisations that have been awarded are invited to nominate a member of the CEEG. Membership is not transferable. CEEG members are:
