The cluster management
The professional association MST BW (Mikrosystemtechnik Baden-Württemberg e.V.) is commissioned by the state of Baden- Württemberg to act as the central contact party for microsystems engineering and as coordinator of the Spitzencluster (leading edge cluster) MicroTEC Südwest. In the field of microsystem technology, MST BW represents the interests of industry, research facilities, and universities in Baden- Württemberg.
The association therefore represents the interests of its members vis-à-vis politics and institutions. It serves as a connective link between research and the economy to sustainably promote and secure knowledge and technology transfer in the region as well as collaboration on an international level.
Together with competent partners, it furthermore presents the cluster's performance capability in the field of microsystems engineering nationally and internationally. MST BW additionally accompanies the strategy process of the Spitzencluster and coordinates all activities within the scope of MicroTEC Südwest.
In addition, there are three important management boards supporting the cluster management:
- Cluster board
- Project board
- Strategy panel
