The Professional Association, the Romanian Patronage of the Fine Mechanics, Optics and Mechatronics Industry - APROMECA has the role of Management Entity of the «MECHATREC» Cluster.
The Innovative Strategic Cluster for the Mechatronics intelligent specialization field - «MECHATREC»” is:
– member in «Romanian Cluster Association» - CLUSTERO
– member in «European Alliance of Mechatronics Clusters», having at this time over 112 member entities
– member in the European platform entitled "European Cluster Collaboration Platform"
«MECHATREC» Cluster went through an evaluation process in 2015 and later, after another 2 years in 2017, it went through a new evaluation, supported by the "European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA)", and based on the results obtained in these evaluations received the "Bronze Label of Cluster Management Excellence" certification for the period 2015¸2017 and later also the "Bronze Label of Cluster Management Excellence" for the period 2017¸2019.
Then, in 2019, it was again in the evaluation process for the "Silver Label of Cluster Management Excellence" certification, which it successfully obtained.
qAPROMECA & «MECHATREC» Cluster have developed their own Database which they make available to their members
qAPROMECA & «MECHATREC» Cluster participates year after year in national and international dissemination of its own products and services in annual technical/profile fairs both in Romania and in the European Union
qAPROMECA & "MECHATREC" Cluster participated with presentations of their own products/services offered at the monthly and thematic meetings and at the "Days of Business Opportunities" with countries from the EU, ASIA, America within the BUCHAREST CHAMBER OF COMMERCE and INDUSTRY, starting with 2008
qAPROMECA & «MECHATREC» Cluster participates in direct cooperation with European partners on national and international R & D projects, and various European projects
qAPROMECA & «MECHATREC» Cluster participates at:
– fairs and exhibitions of national and international inventions since its foundation, where its members have obtained important medals at fairs such as: Brussels Eureka, Geneva – Switzerland, INVENTIKA, ARCA, GENIUS, etc.
– to National Programs dedicated to "Projects for Clusters"
