Registered author(s):

    Integrative medicine or integrative health is a neologism coined by practitioners to describe the combination of practices and methods of alternative medicine with conventional medicine. Some global advanced universities and hospitals have integrative-medicine departments. In European Union and North America networks of cluster initiatives (clusters of clusters) in Integrative Medicine and Tourism have become a widespread approach to the expansion of Life Science industries. The purpose of this paper is to shed light on the question: how can we determine the sustainable progress of integrative medicine and tourism from a systemic perspective, based on inoclustering. The paper develops analysis of stage and opportunities of Integrative Medicine and Tourism Clusters in Europe and Romania.
