SMAB is a member of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy “go-cluster” cluster excellence program consisting of around 100 innovation clusters across Germany.
The program provides financial stimulus – in the shape of support for innovative services and funding for novel solutions – to optimize cluster management allowing member clusters to establish themselves as highly effective and visible international clusters.
In March 2014 the SMAB cluster was awarded with the Bronze Label Certificate from the European Cluster Excellence Initiative. In January 2018, the SMAB cluster was successfully certified with the Silver Label of the European Cluster Excellence Initiative.
