Innovative companies and research institutes in numerous future-oriented sectors have organized themselves into clusters focused on promising new technologies. These regionally-focussed communications platforms support a common strategic goal and support the transfer of knowledge in high tech segments. Companies from numerous sectors are active in these clusters all along the supply chain.
The key factor for success is the participation of different technologies, competencies and areas of knowledge. Participation in a cluster has proven to be a key factor for business success.
The best examples how successful clusters contribute to dynamic economic development are: the software cluster RhineMainNeckar, MoWiN.net for mobility and logistics in North Hessen, and deENet for renewable energy in North Hessen. Successful clusters also exist in Hessen in the sectors for medical and health technology, automotive technology, mechanical engineering, optics and IT as well as many others.

The trend continues toward a cooperative approach between companies in order to achieve projects and secure purchase orders.
