On September 15th, 2015 the Cluster Excellence Expert Group (CEEG), where FEMAC takes part, met in Munich to reflect together with the ESCA secretariat on the Gold label activities of the last twelve months. Following a discussion of results of different Gold label assessments the group also discussed the different opportunities to extend the period of validity of a Gold label as well as potential new activities Gold cluster managers can initiate together with the ESCA secretariat in Berlin. As new chairperson of the CEEG Per Spindler of “BioPeople – Denmark’s Life Science Cluster” was elected, he is supported by the new vice-chairperson, Philip Aldridge of the UK-based “North-East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC)”.
