The role of cluster facilitators

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

Clusters are everywhere. Companies join clusters in order to profit
from a number of benefits. However, these benefits do not come spontaneously.
It takes time to build the platform and trust necessary to foster these
advantages, and in this process, the cluster facilitator plays an important role.
This paper shows that the role of cluster facilitators is highly neglected in
cluster and management literature and that there is no existing framework for
describing and analysing this particular role. At worst, this can lead to
incorrect, simple generalisations regarding cluster facilitators and the context in
which they act. Based on a literature review and a case study, the purpose of
this paper is to provide a framework for identifying and categorising the
specific role of cluster facilitators.
