A method allowing assessing industrial networks holistically and thus allowing one to select best practice examples is presented and applied to a European wide study of industrial networks and clusters. Applying this method to a specific local area can support decisions on which research and political directions should be pursued in order to propose solutions and approaches to support cooperation in industrial networks and clusters. This research is situated within the wider context of designing and managing large-scale multi-functional multi-agent Collaborative Demand & Supply Networks.
