Title Participation of Belarusian universities in designing and functioning of socio-cultural clusters: Gained experience and future prospects
Author Pavel Sapotko
Arts-orientated universities in the Republic of Belarus extensively participate in designing and maintaining various activities performed by socio-cultural clusters. That endeavour ensures that clusters will function efficiently; their work will have a sound scientific foundation and be based on such principles as cooperation, integrity, thoroughness and systemic approach. The universities’ involvement consists in designing development concept, strategic plans, theoretical and practical justifications. In turn, the cluster – represented by organisations that constitute it – provides a platform for research and development, practical experience becomes a source of job placement for graduates. Today clusters appear to be a unique feature in the modern social and economic system of the country and they stand a good chance to generate an innovative and competitive product in the sphere of culture in Belarus.
