WHAT IS AN INNOVATION CLUSTER?
An innovation cluster is a group of interconnected organisations – companies, suppliers, service providers and universities that operate in a particular field or industry sector, usually in close geographic proximity to each other. Participants usually have a recognised specialisation within their industry value chain and a critical mass of entities in a regional concentration that can form the basis for triggering cooperation and dynamic relations within and outside of the cluster.
By aggregating their expertise, technologies, specialised resources, capital and knowledge, innovation cluster members can share advantages, including new partnerships, collaboration and fast exchange of knowledge, which fosters innovation and new ways of doing business.
