Abstract
Clusters constitute a form of cooperation which allows companies to gain more than if they acted in the market alone. Many benefits stem from activities taken up by cluster members and consequently these initiatives are strongly promoted by EU programs. Companies of the Polish wood industry can also profit, thus more and more wood clusters are formed, also in the field of renewable energy. The article presents benefits derived from the existence of well-established clusters as seen from the perspective of the entire economy, regions and finally companies of the Polish wood industry. Further along, the paper provides an overview of clusters functioning in the Polish wood sector, relating to different fields: renewable energy, furniture, builder's joinery, paper, and printing. At the end, a case study of the "Bioenergy for the Region" Cluster is presented.(original abstract)
