Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The mission of the Silesian Nano Cluster is creating a platform of cooperation for entrepreneurs, scientific institutions, public administration institutions, and organising the support of businesses to increase the importance nanotechnology has in forming the future economic and innovative dimension of Silesia.

One of the main roles of the Cluster is developing the permanent cooperation between the scientific and the business sector allowing to complete joint researches and implementation projects, and to effectively transfer and commercialise results of these projects within the framework of the business activity.

The Cluster will allow to create a multidimensional cooperation platform aimed at facilitating the effective fusion and usage of the potential of its members focused on the promotion and development of nanotechnology in Silesia. It will also serve the function of a discussion forum facilitating the development of a joint approach on various issues important for the nanotechnology industry, and allowing for the creation of regional conditions necessary for the development of research and economic activities in the field of nanotechnology.
