• Mekhatronika

    Future of a contemporary enterprise depends on initial courage. Therefore, we are blazing the trail by search, testing and introduction of new prospective business lines, new technologies, new equipment, new equipment for aerospace industry, while promoting young and skilled engineers, managers and designers.

    Mekhatronika innovative aerospace cluster was created on the initiative of FED, JSC whose participants are leading aerospace enterprises of Ukraine, Higher education institutions and research organizations. Heads of these enterprises signed foundation Memorandum and now we discuss the lines of our joint activities. One of the cluster mechanism advantages is pooling of technological, production, financial, labor and other resources while minimizing governmental financial costs.

    The cluster-based cooperation is one of the most efficient mechanisms promoting higher development rates of some industry branches and the country economy at large.

    The fact that a modern high-tech product, is today an integral product that requires diverse technological, production and intellectual capabilities, speaks in favor of the cluster system. Mekhatronika innovative aerospace cluster is located in the center of the most important economic region and is one of the biggest centers of aerospace activities.

    Mekhatronika innovative aerospace cluster is characterized by ideal logistic location, as well as resource, intellectual and production potential.

    The main aim of the cluster policy is ensuring high rates of economic growth, economy diversification due to enhancing enterprises competitive strength, equipment suppliers, component parts, specialized production and servicing, scientific-research and educational institutions that form territorial and production clusters.

    All these can be viewed as components of clusterization synergy effect using which incomes from resources joint use exceed amount of incomes from the use of these resources viewed individually.

    Mekhatronika innovative aerospace cluster is the alliance of Ukrainian enterprises and scientific and educational complex that have been engaged in cooperation for a long time with the aim of creation of modern aerospace systems – all whose activity is based on synergetic integration of mechanics, electronics and computer-based technologies.

    The Cluster main tasks are:

    • enhancing competitive ability and economic potential of the cluster participants due to implementation of effective interaction potential within entire life cycle of the cluster products;

    • creation of a broad access to innovations and new technological solutions, including ensuring technologies transfer;
