Abstract

This paper aims at exploring the various factors which could play a synergic role in the formation of a cluster system to support the development of higher education services as a competitive business endeavour. It proposes that Porter’s cluster dynamics might be applied to education in Cyprus in order that it might grow regionally competitive sector within the Region. This is a goal set out in the Government’s Strategic Development Plan (1999-2003) and is brought into clearer focus with the accession of Cyprus to the EU in May 2004. Indicative evidence of clustering is presented based on the UK’s Research Assessment Exercise and policy issues are discussed for the Cyprus Government.
