Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The Green Cluster aimsto utilize the potential arising from dynamic inter-firm collaboration. By bringing together professionals from sectors seemingly unrelated, in a cluster that is continuously expanding, the aim is to:

  • strengthen joint activities, increase innovation, networking, trust building and sharing of infrastructure without bureaucracy
  • promote business growth, extroversion and internationalization of ideas, concepts and efforts by providing information on sources of funding
  • support Cypriot entrepreneurs to export their services or products to an international market and boost innovation

The power of the Green Cluster comes from its evolving networks and synergies.

Success Story / Achievements: 

We encourage synegries between our nearly 300 members and our international network of supporters, so as to achieve the Green Cluster's mission. Synergies can range from the exchange of products and services, to the sharing of infrastructure, and to the collorative work on funding proposals. To date, 47 such synergies have been recorded and are visible through this map http://www.coop-greencluster.net/en/synergies/

These synergies allow our members to maximise their reach, and thus their profit, start expanding their operations by reaching into new markets and tapping into the expertise and experience of other members, and a significantly reduced cost, and with minimal beaurocracy.
