Introduction to cluster excellence
and ESCA labelling system

The labelling process is a very intense process. It starts way before the evaluation. You will need human resources to prepare the documentation and to attend the evaluation. It is an investment of time, as well. Only the preparation takes usually around 50 and up to 100 hours in some cases. And it can also be financially expensive. Significant preparation is required. Any statement must be demonstrated with documentation.

BUT! It goes beyond a certification. It is a learning journey.

In this webinar we will see the origin of the ESCA labelling process and the characteristics of each label: the bronze, the silver, and the gold.
