Catalan Network Clusters
Catalan Network Clusters are 30 clusters that represent different businesses with specific weight within the Catalan industry. We all share a set of values and objectives that are derived from fundamental one: improving business competitiveness.
From here, each of us structure an organization led by a number of corporate members, and focused on executing a work plan. This work plan translates into a portfolio of services including basic elements as strategy, innovation and internationalization, which may include other aspects such as networking, training or visibility.

Our vocation is to continue working with this clear objective, involving more and more companies and having a growing impact on the Catalan business.
