  17. 17. Higher Intensity of Involvement of Cluster FirmsLeads to Higher Monetary ImpactMonetary added-value for SMEs in clusters compared to their investments low similar high low similar high All firms Firms who are very activeCluster Monitor Germany, July 2012, 50 cluster initiatives representing about 5000 companies in Germany 17
  18. 18. Higher Intensity of Involvement of Cluster Firmsto Higher Monetary Impact Very active none Quite active Quite inactive EUR / p. a. 18
  19. 19. Summary• Future challenge is how to make use of clusters• Good cluster policy is challenging, but possible • It’s not a question of high-tech or amount of funding • Tailor-made funding• Clusters are different and have to be supported in different ways• Predictive cluster mapping gains importance• Cluster (initiatives) should be built on regional strengths • Smart Specialization is a promising approach• Cluster Management Excellence makes the difference 19
