National Cluster Alliance Programme (2014)
A national platform that accelerates ecosystem development across 13 of the UK’s leading tech clusters, to share expertise, knowledge, insights and drive opportunities. It provides a national platform for the regions and clusters to gain access to talent, markets, partnerships, capital and to showcase their respective tech communities whilst adding their voice to Government.
This is a network through which interested parties, such as investors or corporates, can reach start-ups on a national level. It targets support to each cluster across the country based on specific needs, mapping and identifying the capabilities, weaknesses and strengths of each cluster and then addressing them through knowledge transfer and connectivity.
This programme is associated with Recommendation 2 of the Scale-Up Report.
