Supporting development of innovative ecosystem

Our aim is to promote cooperation, networking, innovation and mutual exchange of information between cluster members and other stakeholders in agri-food and bio-based sectors. These are primarily representatives of the business sector, research, development and education, representatives of regional and local governments and, last but not least, representatives of the third sector. As bioeconomy is a very complex topic, the cluster deals not only with agriculture but also with other biological sectors. Its main goal is cooperation with practice and at the same time connecting practice with research and development. In this respect, the cluster is searching for collaboration opportunities to boost innovation, ensures the representation of its members, promotion and promotes common interests.

International cooperation

The cluster focuses on implementation of joint projects within the scope of bioeconomy.  This helps with the development of cluster members, innovation, transfer of knowledge and technology, as well as solving problems of individual members of the cluster. Within the international cooperation, the cluster focuses mainly on finding opportunities for cooperation with EU countries, but in recent years it has expanded its scope of cooperation far beyond European borders and is looking for opportunities in more distant markets, especially for its members.

Providing knowledge transfer

We connect the entities of knowledge triangle,  promote knowledge transfer and cooperation of R&D with agri-business. When developing international cooperation, we build on our membership in various European cluster platforms, networks, and initiatives. This allows us to obtain information and network relevant actors in the bioeconomy – including policymakers, representatives of R&D organizations, business entities, as well as professional and general public.

In 2023 Bioeconomy Cluster was certified for the third time by the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis and received bronze label of cluster management excellence. 


Within national evaluation of cluster performance by the Slovak Innovation and Energy Agency, Bioeconomy Cluster was classified in the category of “Developed Clusters”, which is the highest ranging that can be achieved by cluster in Slovakia.
