The Oregon Industry Cluster Network

In 2005, The Oregon Business Plan launched the Oregon Industry Cluster Network to identify Oregon’s mature, emerging, and potential industry clusters and assist cluster participants as they work to accelerate innovation and the growth of their industries.

The network was created to connect industry leaders with university researchers, schools, media, venture capital, and other resources, the network will help generate new prospects for business recruitment, develop relevant economic & market data, guide public policy, and help cluster facilitators across the state share best practices and develop a regional collaborative advantage.The Network meets quarterly to discuss cluster-based economic development, lead focused discussions on issues that cut-across clusters, share best practices among cluster leaders, and plan for key events and opportunities to tell their stories such as the Oregon Business Plan Leadership Summit.
