Predispositions for creation and development of the biomedical cluster on a transnational basis are based on a clear
interaction between states, business-structures, science and education. Success of the cluster is seen to be dependent on the coordination of basic and applied research, creation of a unified scientific research and education infrastructure, mutual recognition in the field of science and education, implementation of joint initiatives in pioneering sectors, including such in medicine. Universities should become active subjects of transnational innovative scientific and educational clusters,, since human resources are concentrated there and they are the intellectual centers of innovation. Creation of the biomedical cluster on a transnational basis was shown by the example of al-Farabi Kazakh National University (KazNU, Almaty, Kazakhstan).
