CLUTEX received the Golden Cluster title for its work in 2020 and at the same time received an award for its long-term contribution to the regional development of the innovation environment. This confirms the importance of this industry group, which is unique in the textile industry. The award was given by the National Cluster Association and accepted by the cluster manager Ing. Libuše Fouňová, CLUTEX manager at Cluster Day in Liberec.
In the past, the cluster has won the Bronze Cluster Management Excellence Award. This year, CLUTEX sought the Silver Cluster Management Excellence Award. An all-day audit took place in July, which examined the setting up of internal processes, cooperation with members and much more. Four areas were thoroughly examined: Cluster structure, Management, administration, strategy, financing, Service, activities and achieved results.
The cluster staff prepared for this audit for about half a year. CLUTEX succeeded here as well and received the Cluster Management Excellence Label SILVER. This award is granted to the cluster until October 2023. It is already clear that in 2 years we will strive for a step higher again – the golden label.
