nterizon functions as a partnership – mutual rights and responsibilities are regulated by the “Partnership Agreement within the Framework of the Pomeranian Region ICT Cluster” concluded in Gdańsk on 29 October, 2009. The adapted solution allowed for retaining a large level of flexibility, and an open and transparent formula of the ICT cluster organization facilitates integration and undertaking additional activities in particular areas of interest of the cluster members. The Cluster is open – new entities sign the so-called accession act, on the basis of which, following Cluster Management Unit’s acceptance, they become a Cluster Member.

The role of the Administrator has been taken by the Gdańsk University of Technology / Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics.
