About the publication

Clusters and innovation networks can create value for companies in many ways. They offer tailor made services and entrepreneurs and provide new ways of collaboration and knowledge sharing among cluster members. Clusters may also assist in developing education and training courses according to the needs of companies just as they are able to facilitate new R&D collaboration. Furthermore, many clusters are active on the international scene, linking cluster companies to international collaboration partners, new export markets and branding the cluster on the global scene.

This case collection presents 24 best practice cases from some of the most successful clusters and innovation networks in Germany, Poland, and the Nordic Countries. Collectively, the cases illustrate the variety of ways clusters can create added value for their member companies.

The case collection is one of the outcomes of the Nordic-German-Polish Cluster Excellence Project, which has been carried out in 2010-2011. In the project, 150 clusters in the seven countries have been benchmarked. Furthermore, the clusters were invited to submit a successful case story. Out of these, The Steering Committee of the project has selected the 24 most inspiring cases to be presented in this collection.
