Focus Group on Clusters

Lead country: The Netherlands

To explore to what extent and in which respects clusters differ in their innovation performance and mechanisms of knowledge sharing and transfer, with a view to deriving implications for cluster-based innovation policy. This focus group will concentrate on:

  • Improving and applying the common methodology for input-output analysis (macro-clustering).

  • Comparing selected individual clusters internationally.

  • Developing and applying a typology of clusters based on their innovation patterns.
