Through its members, CEBR has developed a range of services that bring benefit to its members and the biocommunities that they serve. The golden rule for CEBR activities are that they must bring direct benefit to biotechnology and can be implemented by all members for the benefit of the European biotech sector as a whole.
Special Interest Groups
One of the main tools for delivering CEBR activities is its Special Interest Groups. These are based on key activities important to all clusters and are defined by Members. They currently include Shared Facilities, Emerging Regions, Cluster Management and Cluster Assessment plus others. Members come together to share good practice and develop new ideas - they are the conduit for many Member EC projects to work together.
CEBR is an excellent platform through which to develop and initiate and disseminate projects that build biotechnology in Europe. Members have already worked together to submit FP7 proposals and all results will be disseminated through CEBR, ensuring that all biocommunities benefit from network activities.
The Project Forum lists projects under development and submitted - Members can view all projects, join ones under development and champion new projects.
CEBR holds an Annual Meeting which brings together Members from all over Europe to review activities, discuss cluster development and plan for the year ahead. The meeting is for Members and invited guests.
CEBR at BIO
Cluster partnerships do not end within Europe. Global partnership is the key to delivering life sciences and CEBR uses BIO each year to meet new global clusters and create valuable partnerships.
