Clusters & Cluster Policy

Cluster policy is one of the effective tools for the development of territories and regions. The cluster approach is most widely spread the European Union, where it has been elevated to the rank of state policy. The Russian Federation has been providing active support to innovative regional clusters since 2011.
The Center for Strategic Research" North-West" Foundation was one of the initiators of this support. It participated directly in establishment of five innovation clusters in a number of cities across the country. Each of the clusters has received state financial support.
Development of cluster communications opens up new opportunities for Russian regions to enter fast-growing national and global markets, contributes to drawing more attention and interest of government authorities at all levels.
