Minalogic Receives Highest Rating for Cluster-Management Excellence from EU

GRENOBLE, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Minalogic, the global competitive cluster dedicated to micro- and nanotechnologies and embedded software, has received a Cluster Management Excellence Quality Label of “Gold” from the European Commission Cluster Excellence Initiative.

The Quality Label was developed by the Cluster Excellence Initiative to create an independent, voluntary proof of cluster management excellence that is accepted and recognized throughout Europe. The Quality Label, the highest management rating given to clusters, is designed to motivate cluster managers to compare their programs and policies and to learn from each other’s best practices.

The program evaluates clusters according to 31 quality indicators covering several areas, such as structure, governance, strategy, services and achievements. Gold is the highest rating the initiative awards to clusters. Minalogic is one of only nine EU clusters to receive the Gold Quality Label.

“This award underscores the high level of professionalism and technical expertise and the strong commitment to our members’ success that Minalogic’s entire staff brings to each project every day,” said Minalogic CEO Jean Chabbal. “Our goal is to build on this recognition and continue to improve throughout the organization.”

Minalogic also was one of 20 French clusters, out of 71 evaluated, to receive the French government’s highest rating: “very performing.”
