1 Call for Expressions of Interest for Consultants for Strategic Plan Cluster Development within the EU COSME project ECRI 1

2 Overview: The Biotechnological and Biomedical Cluster of the Balearic Islands, BIOIB, seeks submissions from qualified consultancies for support in the development of the new 3-5 years strategic plan for the cluster and a roadmap to help monitor the implementation of the strategy, as an action integrated in the ECRI project, EU funded under the cluster excellence program. Short description of the cluster BIOIB was born in 2010 as an initiative of the Government of the Balearic Islands and of the Balearic Association of Companies of Biotechnology, constituted by companies in which the technological innovation plays a fundamental role inside his competitive strategy. BIOIB's principal aim is to increase and to reinforce the competitiveness of the economy of the islands in a long term, promoting sectors that contribute to the economic development of the region. Short description of the ECRI project: The ECRI project is composed of four Life Science clusters with the common objective to improve the performance of the four consortium clusters, achieve and maintain cluster excellence in order to strengthen the competitiveness of their actors, - in particular SMEs- and foster trans-cluster cooperation. This set of goals will be achieved through the implementation of the following actions: 2 bronze labels and a benchmarking exercise based on ESCA results, a Cluster and sector comparative analysis report and the training activities based on the common strengths and weaknesses identified. From the data obtained, the lessons learned and the study visits, the consortium members will develop a new 3-5-year individual strategic plan and a roadmap to help monitor the implementation of the strategy, the increase of business competitiveness in the sector (through projects, patents, services, etc.), and the accomplishment of the Smart Specialization Strategies. A common strategy will be developed on how to continue to follow excellence in cluster management and on possible common activities to be developed after the project, highlighting possible funding opportunities at European level and potential synergies between various related sectors. Finally, through several dissemination activities and tools (local workshops, and newsletter, project presentations at external events and the Green Paper on the 2

3 learned lessons) the partnership will be able to communicate at regional, national and European level the results and benefits of this project.
