Membership conditions

Cluster membership

Cluster membership is open to organisations – companies, departments/laboratories of public research organisations, etc – and, additionally, to individuals who are working independently and who have skills of interest and relevance to the cluster. Membership applications are evaluated and accepted on a case-by-case basis by the Cluster Manager in collaboration with the Steering Committee depending on the added value applicants can bring to the cluster through their knowledge and business activities.

By accepting these conditions of use, I confirm that I am duly authorised to represent the organisation for which I am applying for membership.

Participation in cluster activities

The core of the Cluster’s activities is an active exchange and collaboration between members on topics of joint interest. The success of these activities and the benefit generated is strongly dependent on the active participation of the Cluster members. When joining the Cluster, members are thus expected to regularly participate in and contribute to cluster activities.

Data protection

Any personal data relating to cluster members or their organisation that they supply on the Cluster websites (the “Data”) will be treated in accordance with the law on personal data protection of 2 August 2002.

When using some of the Cluster’s services, such as the registration to the newsletter, you will possibly be required to provide, using the relevant forms, Data, such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, country and commune of residence as well as comprehensive Data and information on your company and its activities.
