CLUSTERIX aims at enabling regional authorities to identify, analyze and explore the potential of strategic future cluster development through the exchange of experience and best practices between 9 partners from 8 different countries. The overall objective of CLUSTERIX is thus to increase the competitiveness of European regions and their innovation potential through the improvement and strategic re-orientation of cluster policies towards smart specialization. Furthermore the Project tackles themes of high interest for cluster policy makers:
- funding the cluster support and its political/strategical orientation and expected impact;
- pushing emerging industries through cluster development (e.g. by using public procurement);
- creating the positive framework for cross-linked cluster cooperation between the partner regions.
