Joint project of Polessky State University and WSB University in Gdansk

Organizational and economic mechanism for the formation of cross-border clusters in the European area

The cluster approach, first formulated by M. Porter within the framework of the Theory of international competition, is actively developing at th present time. In modern studies, the emphasis is focused on the need for targeted development of clusters as an element of state economic policy. At the same time, the vision of the role of the state in the formation and functioning of clusters is fundamentally changing.
The cluster is considered as a manageably developing branch (inter-sectoral) territorial association of enterprises and entrepreneurs with research and development institutions, research-type educational institutions and local authorities to increase the competitiveness of their products and the economic growth of the region. The cluster is formed purposefully by stimulating the “non-contractive” industries, and the state acts as the “initiator” of clustering.
Integration processes in the European area contribute to the formation of cross-border clusters, which are the most important factor in improving the competitiveness of the national economy.
All of the above requires the development of scientifically based approaches to the formation of cross-border cluster initiatives in the post-Soviet area.
