Cluster Policy in Russia: Reaching Global Competitiveness. Issue 2

Today, there are over 110 cluster initiatives functioning in Russia which unite over 3 thousand organizations and create around 1.3 million workplaces. The cluster policy in Russia is implemented by two state agencies: the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation. Their activities are aimed at supporting cluster initiatives, providing consulting and organizational services, including marketing research; organizing educational events, exhibitions, communications and information campaigns; developing business plans and strategic documents, etc.

The authors review the results of implementing cluster policy over the last 10 years. The first section of the report deals with cluster support programs and describes the structure and the first results of the Development of Innovative Clusters — Leaders in World-Class Investment Attractiveness national priority project. Besides, the authors analyze key indicators of the participants of the project, their development and areas of support.


The second section, titled Profiles of Innovative Clusters — Leaders in World-Class Investment Attractiveness, provides a comprehensive description of the leading clusters which have been selected as part of the priority project. The information is arranged in thematic blocks, with the structure of profiles harmonized with the questionnaire of the European Cluster Collaboration Platform.
