The Mining Education Cluster

Natalia Anatolyevna Kazachek, Julia Sergeevna Tokareva


The isolated activity of the government authorities, business and education system in the modern rapidly developing world does not lead at least to the progress. The innovative forms of progressive interaction are required. Such forms include clusters and, in particular, the education clusters. The article presents the material on the creation of the mining education cluster in the case of the Zabaikalsky Krai. The cluster formation is based on the public-private partnership. The cluster activity will provide for the development of the innovative and entrepreneurial culture, and will contribute to the establishment of small innovative enterprises. The paper lists the basic prerequisites for the formation of the mining education cluster in the region, as well as the functions implemented within the framework of the new cluster. It proposes the results of modelling the structure and status of the mining education cluster by means of the mathematical apparatus of the theory of sets. The consideration is given to the indicators of the cluster operation obtained due to the merger of organizations. The presented formal description of the cluster allows us to predict the expected scope of the cluster, its optimized structure, the possibilities of its development, and the assessment of the efficiency of various mechanisms of coordination and decision-making of the cluster participants. The model of the mining education cluster reflects the basic regularities of its functioning, the process of changing its structure, and the cluster-generating ties.
