Cluster policy is an instrument of modern economic policy. Being an integral part of Hamburg’s innovation and technology strategy and follows the vision of making Hamburg the” innovation capital” of Europe until 2020. An important prior condition for this is qualified staff.


Cluster policy-skills and expertise

With her active cluster policy, the city of Hamburg has been supporting innovation, economic growth and employment in sustainable industrial sectors for many years. A business cluster is a geographic concentration of interconnected businesses, suppliers, universities, research and educational institutions in a particular field. The basis for the successful cluster policy is the open, trusting and close collaboration between the partners.

Technological progress, changes in the working world and an increasing international division of labour lead to a growing need for specialist staff in Germany. Therefore, personal and qualification has an important role in Hamburg’s cluster policy to guarantee the economic competiveness and innovation for all companies. The demand for specialist personal depends on many factors and can change quickly due to new challenge and industries. So, the city of Hamburg builds on adjustable and flexible structures as well as continuous dialogue between the different participants and partners.
