  • 44. Main Findings and Suggestions for Policy-makers • Environmental attractiveness is not necessarily a relevant dimension for assessing IT cluster’s knowledge potential. • R&D&I attractiveness, ownership attractiveness, and knowledge dynamics seem to be the most influential dimensions to drive entrepreneurial activity and new business development in a cluster. • Constructing a cluster is not enough. There must be a dynamic innovation ecosystem with policies, programs and institutions in place to support entrepreneurial activities.
  • 45. Suggestions for Future Research • More attempts to reveal the connection between clustering and entrepreneurship (e.g., case studies with in-depth interviews) • Similar studies in other industries and other IT clusters
