3-Year Cluster Strategies – Template 

Since the approval of EUNIC Strategic Framework, EUNIC clusters have been developing three-year cluster strategies that will help them contribute to its delivery as well as move from one-year programming of events to a more strategic approach to their work.

EUNIC Global office is supporting them in the process and has developed a template for cluster strategies.
