Description

CEAGA gathers the whole automotive industry in Galicia: the car maker, the Groupe PSA Center of Vigo, more than 100 component manufacturers and service providers and the Automotive Technology Centre of Galicia, CTAG.

Over the years, CEAGA has enabled the sector to develop initiatives of high strategic value, thus becoming a reference cluster in Spain and Europe. Proof of this is the fact that the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism (MINETUR) keeps the CEAGA Foundation in the Innovative Business Groupings (AEI) Register, with the category of "excellent", after assessing its level of excellence.

CEAGA carries out its activity under the framework of the Galician Government Cluster Policy through the Galician Institute for Economic Promotion (IGAPE), who funds the initiatives included in the Action Plan, P3CA 2025, which is our Cluster roadmap.

At international level, CEAGA is the first automotive cluster in Europe with the Cluster Organization Management Excellence Gold Label. After successfully passing an exhaustive audit consisting in the analysis of 31 management indicators, CEAGA joins the Cluster Excellence Expert Group (CEEG), composed of representatives of cluster organizations also holding this award.

The "Gold Label" is awarded by the "European Secretariat Clusters Analysis" (ESCA). It is an independent accreditation and a tool for clusters, accepted and recognized all over Europe, which also offers the opportunity to be part of the Cluster Excellence Expert Group (CEEG); in fact CEAGA was vice president from 2014 to 2015.

This way, the CEAGA Foundation became the first Spanish organization to be involved in the management of this group, which represents the elite of excellent clusters, besides being the first European automotive cluster which holds this seal of quality.
