CLUSLIB - Clustermapping Libya

Cluster and network policy has been gaining increasing importance in North Africa since the Arab Spring. This is also the case in Libya, which already addressed the topic of cluster development together with Michael Porter (Harvard Business School) in 2006. The iit's CLUSLIB project continues this work consistently and has three essential elements: firstly, cluster mapping of existing industrial sectors. The second is the training of innovation and network managers and the analysis of the national innovation system in comparison to Tunisia and Egypt. Subsequently, political recommendations for action will be derived on how the innovative capacity and performance of Libyan industry can be sustainably improved.
