There are several ways Victorian industries, R&D organisations and universities could benefit from the formation of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry clusters around intelligent transport systems or project lifecycle technical data and knowledge management for collaborative engineering. This paper explains the "industry cluster" concept, reviews the current state of incipient local ICT clusters, points to some case studies where companies have benefited, and suggests practical things that local organisations may do to encourage and exploit cluster development activities for their own benefits.
