  The Specificity of the Clusters
Clusters are a particular area within which is recognizable a certain concentration of a particular phenomenon. For instance, "a group of producers making the same or similar things in close vicinity to each other" (Schimtz, H., “On the clustering of small firms”, IDS Bulletin 1992, Vol. 23 n.1). Industrial districts can be defined as clusters of firms within a particular industrial sectore/segment. The conventionally adopted definition assignes to Clusters two peculiar characteristics:

  • the geographical concentration
  • the sectoral specialisation.
Many clusters are inserted in the 7 geographic area of NANOFORCE and really they offer an huge market and potential Costumers for the nanodeal generated through NANOFORCE!
