Smart regional specialization is a concept promoted through the Europe 2020 Strategy that aims to increase the efficiency of the use of European funds for research, development and innovation. Innovation clusters are development tools for businesses in less developed regions of the European Union that can associate and cooperate to create networking opportunities and develop partnerships for investment in research, development, innovation, and technology transfer. The analysis of the potential to develop innovation clusters at the level of the less developed regions in Central and Eastern Europe, using the European Cluster Observatory and the Cluster Stars indicator, helped create a ranking of these regions and identify the economic sectors that play a role in the development of enterprises in the region, in increasing innovation and employment capacities.
