Abstract: This article presents a theoretical review of the concept “innovation milieu” in the context of an industrial cluster. Porter’s industrial cluster approach is used for the purposes of this article (Porter, 1990 [1]). Based on the existing literature, the author brings the concept multi-scaled innovation milieu, which concerns the industrial cluster’s overall innovation milieu as aggregation of different interactions in three particular areas, namely: inside the structure of each separate actor; amongst all actors participating in the cluster; between the cluster and other organizational networks.

Keywords: cluster, innovation, milieu.
