Key Success Factors in Strategic Development of Clusters

Clusters have been recognized as an important means for stimulating innovations and fostering competitiveness, economic development and prosperity. Today, about 20 years after the concept of business clusters gained relevance as a tool for economic  development, it is used by countries and regions around the world with varying speeds, particularities and of course different starting points. Cluster initiatives are undertaken to stimulate cluster dynamics and development. Understanding key success factors behind strategic development of clusters is crucial in order to optimize public resources and deploy efficient cluster policies. This webinar aims to serve to this purpose with examples of success stories.

Cluster Development is a Spanish consultancy firm headquartered in Barcelona. It specializes in the strategic and sustainable development of clusters to reinforce the overall competitiveness and long-term profitability of cluster firms.
