Innovation-led clusters are geographical concentrations of interconnected companies, universities, research & development organizations and government bodies that collaborate to support an innovation ecosystem that increases productivity and spurring new innovations. Some well-known examples of clusters are Silicon Valley, the automotive district of Detroit, the film industry of Hollywood, the wineries of France and the financial district of New York. This report studies Innovation-led clusters across the following clusters: Healthcare, Energy, Materials & Coatings, Information & Communication Technologies and Automation & Electronics. The significance of the clusters across each industry has been covered, best practices in each cluster have been identified, innovation-led clusters have been benchmarked to obtain a comparative assessment and key findings for each industry group have been listed.
