What is a Thematic Cluster?
ADRION has decided to boost the transfer and re-use of project results by building thematic networks, which allow to exchange practices and create synergies among projects dealing with complimentary thematics. Those networks are called “ADRION Thematic Clusters” and are part of the Programme capitalisation strategy. The areas of each ADRION Thematic Cluster have been identified according to strategic key sectors of development and growth in the Adriatic-Ionian region and following the policy objectives of the new EU Cohesion Policy.
