The Chemie-Cluster Bayern is a network of companies and research institutions in the Bavarian chemical industry. As part of the Bavarian government’s cluster initiative, Chemie-Cluster Bayern promotes product and process innovations for new, usually international markets. To this end, the cluster management puts together cross-industry alliances, coordinates the acquisition of third-party funding, takes charge of project progress monitoring and provides project-accompanying transfer services. The cluster management discusses the need for chemical supplier innovations with developers and product managers from all branches of industry. Chemie-Cluster Bayern supports various regional networks in Bavaria. Strategic alliances with international chemical sites, especially in Europe and Asia, strengthen the global competitiveness of the cluster members.
