WAB 2018 awarded with silver label

In 2018, WAB was awarded with the silver label certificate of the European Cluster Excellence Initiative as an innovation cluster. WAB has thus successfully demonstrated that it has continuously developed its processes and instruments. WAB Managing Director Andreas Wellbrock sees this as confirmation of the current transformation process: "We are continually modernizing our network in order to offer our members real added value. The silver award is a great confirmation of our work."

The certification is carried out by the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis in cooperation with the excellence programme "go-cluster" of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.
