Cluster as an institution of new industrialization

The article considers new industrialization as a process of modernization and innovative development of the national economy, accompanied by a change in the institutional framework. The authors formulate the assumption that the cluster, as an institution of new industrialization, provides the process of transferring dynamic abilities, which are important from the point of view of industrial transformations, for the effective combination of resources and technologies. The place of dynamic abilities as a unique resource at the stages of technical and economic development, including the phase of formation of the technical and economic paradigm, is substantiated. The article also concludes that different models of new industrialization can be institutionally provided with different types of cluster formations, within which dynamic abilities perform different specific functions

Keywords: new industrialization, modernization, innovation, new technologies, technical and economic paradigm, cluster, dynamic capabilities, knowledge transfer, models.
