The place to strengthen your strategy

Imagine a place where you can find the key tools and instruments for defining the strategy to make you more competitive. A place where you can learn about winning strategies for your business, where you can learn from other experiences and where you can gain access to all the knowledge concerning your business ecosystem. In fact, you really need not imagine anything. Here you will find it as a member of a cluster, a concentration of companies, institutions and related stakeholders that are close at hand and both compete and cooperate at the same time.

ACCIÓ has established 24 clusters that already include more than 2,300 companies and partners, and have a turnover of over 69,000 million euros.

Who is it for?

A cluster is an organization that focuses on the competitiveness of companies, which are mostly SMEs, but also include startups, multinationals, technology centres and universities.

The advantages

The members of the cluster come together both to increase their individual competitiveness and, meanwhile, to improve the quality of their surroundings. They share a space where everyone has all the tools they require to improve their competitive strategy, a challenge that often draws from cooperation with the other members as they all jointly represent the same value chain.

Clusters are organizations based on trust relationships that are not controlled by larger companies but led by the most active companies, regardless of their size. They do so within the framework of a dynamic organization the focus of which is competitiveness. The work philosophy, the positioning and the activity of a cluster are specific and differential.

In addition, clusters have a team led by the Cluster Manager, an executive dedicated exclusively to generating trust, to networking, to advising companies and to building activities and projects to make them more competitive.

Through the Catalonia Clusters Programme ACCIÓ has established an ecosystem of 24 clusters. This is an interconnected network that offers any company participating in a cluster access to work with the others. This is possible thanks to the networking of intercluster dynamics.

How it works

Working in a cluster promotes actions aligned with the strategic challenges of the cluster itself, as defined by its member companies, with a view to improving companies’ competitiveness. It does so through innovation in its business models, the internationalization of markets, management training and intercluster dynamics.


Projects platform

  • The cluster allows for the boosting transformational projects, which are aligned with future strategies that are difficult for a company on its own to follow.


Strategic intelligence

  • The cluster provides knowledge of winning strategies. The exchange of knowledge and experience yields information about the market, business challenges, trends and key technologies and success stories and failures from which to learn.



  • Clusters are based on relationships of trust generated by interaction among companies. Formal and informal meetings allow for the sharing of opportunities and the generation of business.
