We promote collaboration and cooperation between the business entities from the agro-industrial sector, the academic and research field and we encourage the process of competitively restructuring the sector, ensuring the participation in a multitude of national and international company projects.

We support the furniture industry in order to uphold the growth of cluster competitiveness, as well as the competitiveness of each individual member, on both the national and international market.

We intend to form the human resources from the advanced technology field in the North-West region of development, namely the metropolitan areas of Cluj and Oradea.

Our wish is to increase the competitiveness of the IT sector and to position the Cluj IT brand and, thus, to make Romania a provider of renowned software solutions within Eastern Europe.

We promote the revival and economic development of Romania by upholding the creation, development and cooperation between clusters at a regional, national and international level.
