NCE Cleanteach Maritime is one of the European gold labelled clusters (www.cluster-analysis.org/gold-label-new).

Cluster management organisations holding a GOLD Label show their documented commitment towards a continuous improvement of their organisational structures and routines for the benefit of an even higher performance. The label is only valid for two years and means the management organisation meet certain “levels of excellence” in terms of structure of the cluster, governance, financing, strategy and services and recognition.
