Cluster Initiatives Lake Constance (CLIB)

Cross-border networking and promotion of know-how transfer among cluster initiatives



Around Lake Constance there are many regional networks for topics and branches, so-called cluster initiatives. Synergies, both within the cluster initiatives and across clusters, help companies and scientific institutions to exchange experiences and establish cooperation.

Meetings of the Cluster Initiatives Lake Constance (CLIB) bring together representatives of the regional economy, the chambers, local authorities and the respective business development agencies. Promoting the further development of these networks in the VLRB is the primary goal of the CLIB. In doing so, the CLIB facilitates the transfer of knowledge between the networks and clusters. It also fosters promotion and development of existing and new networks.

Lake Constance Region Ambassdors Club


The Ambassadors Club is an association of committed individuals - ambassadors - in business, tourism, science, culture, politics and administration. Its goal is to communicate the specific VLRB location advantages internally and externally, to promote cross-border cooperation and thus strengthen the region around Lake Constance in the long term.

The VLRB ambassadors choose the extent of their commitment themselves. There are no financial obligations, ambassadors merely commit to one idea: Jointly represent the interests of the VLRB by promoting the business area and potential of our region.

As personalities in politics, business and culture, the ambassadors are often on the road, speaking and hosting guests, partners and customers. Aside from the honorable value of a commitment, Ambassadors Club membership also offers tangible advantages. Together with their co-members, ambassadors form an international network - the Ambassadors' Club.
