Value Creation in Three Clusters Focusing on Chemistry
In the presented study three clusters that focus into chemical industry were studied to explore value creation created by the cluster entities and the companies within the cluster by conducting qualitative remote interviews of 13 stakeholders located in three cluster of Smart Chemistry Park in Finland, InfraLeuna in Germany and Jurong Island in Singapore. The highest value created in the studied clusters was associated with collaboration. The second highest value created was considered to be the creation of networks (in itself related to collaboration), followed by infrastructure and development and innovation.
