Clusters as instruments of territorial development

Clusters are one of the key forms for broad organisation of economic activity. Many countries and megalopolises consider cluster policy to be a key tool in developing certain sectors and locations. However, many such projects fail, as the existing mechanisms and technologies for their gradual formation only provide partial solutions and are often subjected to criticism. ● During the formation of agglomerations and uncovering of potential industrial and spatial growth points for the growth of clusters, which tools and approaches should be used for their stimulation? ● Is it worth establishing special conditions within agglomerations and cities for cluster initiatives, and if so, then at what stage? ● Which examples of international experience can be used to show the most successful and unsuccessful projects? ● What role should city communities, municipal and national governments play in promoting cluster initiatives?
