What is InterSpiN?
InterSpiN stands for internationalization of leading-edge clusters, future projects and comparable networks. With this plan the Federal Ministry of Education and Research takes the growing need of internationalization of innovative clusters into account.
A scientifically grounded accompanying research has an essential meaning to better understand the determinants and effects of the internationalization of leading-edge clusters, future projects and comparable networks, to analyze the internationalization strategies on this basis and to be able to support the funding recipients with their successful realization of the planned measures.
