Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The Emilia-Romagna industrial system is strongly focused on the productive dimension and is extremely dynamic from the point of view of the research for innovative and competitive solutions. Advanced and competitive services, both internally developed by manufacturing companies, and provided and organized by specialized companies, are essential to guarantee the protection of markets and their loyalty. In this context, the role of digital technologies, as a vehicle for transforming services in a global context and to emphasize their transformative power of the economy and society, is particularly important.

The Service Innovation Clust-ER is an association of public and private bodies: companies, research centres and training institutions that share skills, ideas and resources to support the competitiveness of the sector. The Emilia-Romagna Region has found in the Clust-ERs the subjects capable of multiplying innovation opportunities through a collaborative approach, as they focus their activity in R&D strategic sectors. Together with the Technopoles and the High Technology Network laboratories, they are one of the key players in the regional innovation ecosystem coordinated by ASTER, the Emilia-Romagna consortium for innovation and technology transfer. The Service Innovation Clust-ER focuses on its action on 5 strategic lines of research and innovation enabled through 5 working groups, or Value Chains, representative of the Emilia-Romagna service innovation system:
