There is a strong biotechnology cluster in Vancouver yet there is no major manufacturing facility. The Vancouver cluster is unlike other biotech clusters in that its output is solely intellectual property. This ongoing study not only examines the usual structure of a cluster, but also will focus on the issue of intellectual environment, and seek to determine whether a strong cluster can be built without the presence of a large, globally-competitive, manufacturer.
