Saradnjom ESCA & Kuće klastera do klasterske izuzetnosti u Srbiji


ESCA (Evropski sekretarijat za analizu klastera), kao deo EU strategije za kreiranje više klastera svetske klase širom Evrope kroz jačanje klasterske izuzetnosti, je mreža klaster eksperata iz više od 30 zemalja širom sveta.

U okviru V Konferencije klastera Rumunije „Klasteri kao nosioci razvoja lanca vrednosti u Dunavskom region”, inicirane od strane Rumunske asocijacije klastera ClusteRo, od 5.-6.oktobra 2016.godine u Galacu, u cilju pružanja praktične podrške menadžmentu klasterskih organizacija u Srbiji na putu pridruživanja EU, ESCA je iskazala ozbiljnu nameru u pravcu produbljivanja saradnje sa Kućom klastera. Kolaboracija između ESCA i Kuće klastera radi postizanja klasterske izuzetnici u Srbiji je usmerena na dve oblasti:

  1. Promociju izuzetnosti klaster menadžmenta kroz “benchmarking” (ocenjivanje prema referentnim vrednostima) i sertifikaciju kvaliteta klastera i menadžmenta klasterske organizacije (tzv. nalepnice kvaliteta). ESCA je ovlašćena od European Cluster Excellence Initiative ECEI (Evropske inicijative za klastersku izuzetnost) da organizuje proces sertifikacije tj. ocene kvaliteta klastera.
  2. Pružanje savetodavne podrške o programima razvoja klastera donosiocima odluka i kreatorima politika/strategija o ekonomskom razvoju kroz koncept klastera.

Ozbiljnost namere ESCA potvrđena je zvaničnim dopisom 9.januara 2017.godine u kome je izraženo interesovanje da se omogući Kući klastera da ojača ulogu u razvoju klastera u Srbiji.

Kako je u periodu od 2012.-2013.godine u Srbiji bilo pet sertifikovanih klastera “bronzanom nalepnicom kvaliteta” i uzimajući u obzir izostanak sistemskog nacionalnog i regionalnog pristupa razvoju klastera, pet bronzanih klastera nije pristupilo resertifikaciji nakon isteka perioda važenja sertifikata/nalepnice o kvalitetu klastera. Trenutno u Srbiji nema klastera koji ispunjavaju uslove pristupa EU/COSME programu, jer je jedan od uslova posedovanje nalepnice o kvalitetu klastera, a Srbija je kao zemlja ispunila uslove učešća u ovom programu uplatom iznosa koji joj daje kredibilitet da institucije, organizacije i preduzeća iz Srbije mogu projektno pristupiti fondu. Kolaboracija između ESCA i Kuće klastera doprineće da srpska klasterska zajednica sazna za uslove sertifikacije kvaliteta klastera (dobijanja nalepnica o kvalitetu klastera) kroz promociju i razumevanje značaja sistema sertifikacije (obeležavanja) klasterske izuzetnosti.
