Abstract

Our paper is focusing on Hungarian innovation clusters which have also earned accreditation titles. Nowadays, one may say that the number of players recognising the advantages of a cluster membership among businesses as well as non-profit organisations is increasing; we can therefore witness a process of closing up in the development of clusters, similarly to other areas. The result and practical significance of our study is that highlights the potential of organising clusters – compared to business networks - and shows the opportunities of innovation and cooperation.
