OPERATION OF THE CLUSTER
The Software Innovation Pole Cluster is a voluntary collaboration between software industry players and organizations interested in the development of the sector. The Cluster is an aggregation of members with equal rights, maintaining a cooperative and trusting relation with other members. The Cluster itself has no legal form and legal personality.
Following the establishment of the Cluster in 2007, the Cluster Committee and the Operative Body of the Cluster were set up. External representation of the Cluster is provided by a gestor company, GriffSoft Zrt.
The Cluster operates under the Organizational and Operational Rules and Code of Ethics adopted on 13 June 2008.
The Cluster's supreme decision-making body is the Cluster Committee, where representatives of the Founding Members and the Members of the Associated Members participate. In the work of the Cluster Committee, each Member is entitled and required to take part with the same rights and obligations by its Representative. The Cluster Committee will meet as necessary, but at least once a year. In the work of the Cluster Committee, each member has one vote.
Gestor of the Cluster
The gestor of the cluster is a member elected by the Cluster Committee, whose permanent representative is entitled to the external representation of the Cluster in one person. The representative of the Gestor is also the Chairman of the Cluster's Operative Body. In addition to representation the gestor’s mission is to catalyse, manage, and control the cluster’s operation. The gestor of the Cluster is GriffSoft Zrt.
The Cluster Committee is entitled to determine the number of members of the Operative Body, to select, appoint and recall its members, taking into account the suggestions of the Cluster Representative.
The implementation of the decisions of the Cluster particularly falls under the competence of the Operative Body, in addition to ensure the operation of the cluster between two Cluster Committee meetings.
