What is a cluster

Paper industry.gif

A cluster is a concentration of interconnected businesses, suppliers, educational institutes, authorities and other related actors in a particular field. A cluster can be international, national or even local. Improved productivity, innovativeness, and strategic capabilities are characteristic of an efficient cluster. As its best, the cooperation will bring about scales of economy.

Forest cluster

Forestry, paper industry and the related industries, organisations and services form the forest cluster. The activities of the cluster members are more or less connected thus strengthening the cluster either directly or indirectly.
As an example, the strong Finnish forest cluster extends from engineering and technology to sophisticated paper products and from forestry to high level education and research.
