Part of the Catalan multi-faceted, pro-business economic policy to promote Catalonia as a business location
Catalonia’s cluster policy is part of the Catalan multi-faceted, pro-business economic policy to promote Catalonia as a business location. Clusters bring together interconnected companies, research centres, universities and other relevant stakeholders sharing the same strategic challenges.
Clusters are often the perfect environment to gather strategic sectorial knowledge, to connect companies locally and globally, and to develop collaborative projects with enough critical mass to compete in a globalised world.
Clusters also ensure that international companies and investors can tap into the resources of a dynamic network of specialised partners and industry related suppliers, providers and associations.
