About Brilliant Project
In the era of the knowledge economy, knowledge management is increasingly important, as it is one of the core factors influencing enterprise competitiveness, affecting innovation performance and sustainable development. Technological progress and globalisation are revolutionising the way of doing business, offering tremendous opportunities for innovation and growth. Lighting is one of the few sectors of building world that has undergone the most revolutionary changes in the last years. Rapid evolution of lighting technologies and IoT systems in buildings offer emerging market opportunities for the EU lighting, furniture and construction industry.
And clusters must be in the front line to support their companies in seizing the business opportunities and become competitive on the global market. These challenges requires skilled and adaptable people who are able to drive and support change. BRILLIANT will support 7 industrial clusters of lighting, furniture and construction sectors in exploiting their potential as industrial network, by increasing skills and know-how of 14 clusters managers in managing their cluster organisations to better serve the needs and expectations of their firms. Managers will develop complete and longstanding cluster strategies, based on clusters’ distinctive value proposition. BRILLIANT will endorse cross-cluster learning and networking to explore and take up new business deals coming from Smart Home and Building concepts. Furthermore, partners will take advantage of the ClusterXchange to facilitate international, sector, and cross-sector cooperation between clusters, SME and scaling-up organisations. Design-thinking, experiential learning and business model tools will be adopted in training and networking to help clusters outline better their vision, objectives and services from different perspectives. Above activities, like pieces of a puzzle combine with each other creating an important contribution to cluster management excellence.
