At the modern development stage of post-industrial society in the world economy the processes of globalization and specialization of national markets significantly enhance the competition among countries, among regions and among individual producers inside a country. Against this background the governmental authorities of the Russian Federation, while preserving the country’s global leadership in the energy sector, recognize the competitive economy and high-tech solutions as the long-term development strategy of the country. Following this line of policy, in the period between 2012 and 2014, Russian regions implemented cluster policy based on the federal and regional innovative development strategies. Among pilot cluster projects financed by the federal budget is the territorial cluster “Pharmaceutics, Medical Equipment and Information Technologies” formed in Tomsk Region that has unique starting opportunities for the formation of a stable innovative regional system, i.e., it has a developed scientific and educational complex as well as small and medium-size innovation enterprises with their state-of-the-art technological solutions in pharmaceutics and medical equipment. The two years of the Cluster’s activity, with financial support from governmental authorities, were acknowledged as successful. In the long term plans it is intended to expand both the range of pharmaceutical products and cooperation with other Tomsk clusters.
