Unlocking investment, jobs and opportunities through business clusters

The CBI is committed to supporting the development of world-class business clusters in every region and nation. We believe this will drive investment, innovation and resilience which can raise productivity, wages and living standards across the economy. 

CBI Clusters Playbook: How to build brilliant economic clusters

This Playbook is designed to be an interactive best practice manual for cluster development in the UK. It contains guidance about how to build the necessary components for success, drawing on insights from the business leaders, policymakers and investors who are making it happen across the country.
