This year the beginning of September is not only an important starting point for anxious students returning to school or beginning university. It is also an important turning point for ArchEnerg Cluster. Years of hard work and months of dedicated preparation could finally pay off – the reward is around the corner. It is worth noting we’ve been aiming for Gold, namely the European Cluster Excellence Initiative (ECEI) Gold Label accreditation. Our chance is here with this week’s audit and what an achievement it would be to get it - we would be the first in Hungary with such a title! Successful Gold accreditation would imply additional funding opportunities in the future reserved exclusively for this elite club, opportunities to grow as a network and develop our renewable energy sector towards a more prosperous tomorrow.
We wish for the best and will keep our readers posted!
