The Smart Technology Cluster (SCT) formed six years ago serves as proof that clustering offers tangible added value. Evaldas Paliliūnas, the Head of Sales of the member company Aedilis, spoke about how the joint project implemented by the cluster has not only saved the hospital’s funds, but also inspired for new profitable business ideas.
A number of factors have influence on the success of cluster’s operation, however motivation to maintain cooperation, a talented and pro-active team and focus for research will guarantee a desired result. The fact that clusters are an excellent medium for creation of innovations may be proven and demonstrated in practice by the members of the Photovoltaic Technology Cluster established in 2008.
