Competitive advantages of the cluster “Intellectualization” of newly created bio-enterprises as a new type of production: “smart factories”
3 stages of cluster profile development:
1. Optimization of existing technologies for production and use of bioproducts;
2. Import substitution;
3. Leadership in the domestic market and export.

The idea of a smart plant implies the inclusion of interactive processes and IT diagnostics, selection of optimal recipes and monitoring the results of their application.

Business models for commercializing projects for cluster profiles
Business models are designed to create innovative high-tech enterprises of small and medium-sized businesses. During 2018-2022 it is planned to create 150 small and medium-sized enterprises, including: 9 smart plants, 8 laboratories, 37 farms, a Consulting center. The number of highly-qualified jobs to be created, primarily for the graduates of “Polessky State University” is 1500.

Use of own research results as a technological platform
The technological platform of the cluster profiles is based primarily on the own results of scientific research, both already completed (horizon 1) and planned – in the laboratories of Biotechnological center (horizon 2). In the cluster the applied scientific research of the first horizon has already been commercialized, and horizon two projects are being selected.
An integral effect of the cluster is the creation of a world-class science and education center in the field of biotechnology, “green” economy and healthy lifestyle.

Financing research and commercialization of projects by maximizing the funds of individuals and legal entities
It is envisaged to use crowdinvesting as a new form of project financing for the Republic of Belarus. Creation of the regional investment platform will allow maximal expanding the range of investors and diversification of the forms of their participation in projects, both at the research stage and commercialization. A number of bioproduction enterprises will be created under the franchise of the Technopark Polessye at the expense of franchise funds (own or attracted). The flow of royalties will provide a source of coverage for the current costs of the technology platform.
