Regional Economic Development and Cluster Competitiveness
ETG has been a pioneer in clustering and regional competitiveness for over 30 years. We help clients understand major trends affecting their economies-markets-environment, design a collaborative strategy approach to achieve traction, and engage with stakeholders in action and implementation to create a true regional transformation.
We specialize in the analysis and development of industry clusters–the drivers of regional economic growth. ETG has experience with the development of hundreds of clusters ranging from advanced technology clusters (e.g., biotech, aerospace, nano, IT), to clean tech (wind, solar,green housing, organic agriculture, etc.), to tourism clusters of all types (eco-tourism, adventure, rural and business/convention), to industrial (automotive, electronics, textiles) to agribusiness/agriculture/organic (e.g., fruit, olive oil, cattle, dairy, cacao) to rural clusters.
A cluster focus can include value chain analysis and sustainability transition strategies, as well as engagement with a range of stakeholders from international corporations to local and regional economic actors.
