Currently, the Health Cluster in the South-West Oltenia Region has a number of 16 members:
Territory: South-West Oltenia Region, counties: Dolj, Olt, Vâlcea, Gorj and Mehedinţi.
The management entity South-West Oltenia Regional Development Agency (SW Oltenia RDA) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, of public utility, established in 1999 according to the Romanian Law No. 315/2004 regarding the regional development in Romania. The Agency’s mission is to facilitate and promote the development of the South-West Oltenia Region.
The Agency supports the development interests of local communities, being the bridge between them, the national authorities and the relevant European institutions.
Understanding the importance of collaboration between the business environment, research organizations, universities and public authorities, South-West Oltenia RDA initiated the establishment of six clusters in strategic areas within our region. One of these sectors is the healthcare sector which has a special importance and which can be capitalized through our collaboration and through the funding sources available in this regard such as European Commission programs, for example COSME, HORIZON 2020 and operational programs.
