Competences and fields
The Silicon Saxony Management GmbH refers to long-standing experiences in the care and management of networks. The company's activities started with the management of the top cluster Cool Silicon e. V., which is and still will be supervised administratively by the Management GmbH. As a result, the GmbH took over the application and project coordination of the European cluster project Silicon Europe. Even after the successful project closure at the end of 2015, this merger still persists in the form of the Silicon Europe Alliance persists and could even be extended from formerly six to twelve current clusters.
The cooperation with other clusters forms the basis of numerous contacts with foreign SMEs, but also large companies outside the membership structures of the Silicon Saxony association. These can be approached by the members in connection with services, that converge under the heading funding advice.
In workshops and other events, the Silicon Saxony Management GmbH also brings together German and European decision makers from industry and research to establish business contacts.
The third working field of the Management Ltd. forms the own participation in strategic projects in the European context for the development of knowledge and business opportunities for members of the Silicon Saxony association.
