THE CZECH AND MORAVIAN GLASS CLUSTER
Branch association of Czech Art of Glass

MISSION AND VISION:

Our mission is to create an effective and dynamic platform in the Czech and Moravian glassmaking industry, which would offer interactive space for business, professional and scientific centers and schools, together with supporting complementary institutions.  The core activity of the Cluster is to help and develop the sector in different regions of the Czech Republic and abroad. Currently the Cluster has a single goal: which is in the next 10 years to strengthen the prestige of Czech glassmaking and acknowledge that the Czech glass industry has increased its competitiveness and will maintain a prestigious position at home and internationally. The Cluster thus contributes to the strengthening of activities in the fields of science, research, innovation, and is trying to initiate co-operation between glass, education and industry. An essential part of the Cluster is to publicize Czech glass and introduce it to potential students within the framework of education and qualification. The Glass Cluster has initiated many interesting projects, focusing on the development of new glass making methods and innovations. The aim of the Cluster is to bring attention to raising the artistic standards and quality of production to increase awareness about the creativity of the contemporary Czech and Moravian glass industry with respect to its history.
