According to this strategy, supporting the creation and strengthening of the 'cluster' is a means to alleviate the consequences that certain market failures related to size issues and coordination have on the possibilities for companies to interact with each other, establish flows and achieve sufficient knowledge to develop innovative projects that improve their competitive critical mass.
