Today, 08.10.2013 in München, Germany, at ExpoReal, ClujIT representatives and partners have organized a special event: “Transylvania – building an innovation region” with the main theme: “Cluj-Napoca – empowering business potential in Europe. The heart of Transylvania – represents a region with high potential development trend, bringing positive impact in European future.” The speakers: Horea UIOREANU, President of Cluj County Council; Emil BOC, Cluj-Napoca City Mayor; Alexandru TULAI, President of ClujIT Cluster; and Lucian ISAR, member of the Cluj IT Cluster strategic board.
From the 7th until the 9th of October 2013, ClujIT Cluster Association is attending the ExpoReal München 2013, the 16th International Trade Fair for Property and Investment, one of the largest specialized fairs in Europe. ClujIT is present at the event in partnership with Cluj County Council, Cluj-Napoca Local Council and S.C. Tetarom S.A.
The purpose of this initiative is to expose at international level the strategic projects, both public and private, for the development and consolidation of the Cluj region, as a hub for innovative growth, in order to attract investors and business partners. This action is complementary to the next EU funding program in 2014 – 2020. The Cluj region has a dedicated stand in hall B1 booth 512, where all 4 partners in this project are exhibiting.
During the 3 days event, Cluj region representatives will facilitate the interaction with potential investors and strategic partners for the region. The results and impact of this action will be officially communicated at the end of the tradeshow.
According to the ClujIT Cluster Association official page, “Cluj Innovation City is a planned high technology business area to be built in and around Cluj, the largest city and intellectual capital of the North-Western part of Romania”.
The project is intended to be a highly modern complex meant to encourage companies that are part of the newly established Cluj IT Innovation Cluster and also other science and technology companies from Romania and abroad to establish their base of operations and research here.
Cluj Innovation City aims at concentrating intellectual capital from Romania and abroad. It will foster the further development of diverse technologies having a clear focus on innovation and value-added products. As individuals, small and medium firms, and large corporations become “residents” of the city, the area will go through a development process based on the Cluj Innovation City Master Plan.
On the long-term, Cluj Innovation City will look to meet wider European trends relating to work-force quality of life, and the provision of educational services and cultural and social concepts turning the site into a propeller of research and new technology, of modern and advanced lifestyles.
As a founding member of ClujIT Cluster Association, Codespring adheres to such initiatives and supports the development of ClujIT community.
