The aim is to develop a profound comprehension of what role knowledge plays in the process of integrating the internal knowledge within organizations with the external knowledge that can be found in the surrounding cluster initiatives. This research contains a qualitative case study which was developed by following an interpretative, abductive approach that granted the authors to work with theory and empirical material at the same time. Also, collectively ten semi-structured face-to-face interviews were conducted at our case company Tetra Pak with an additional questionnaire which was provided to us by one of the interviewees in order to build groundings of this thesis. This thesis outlines research in several areas such as the concepts of framework innovation and knowledge along with research on learning organization, clusters, knowledge integration and the SECI model to showcase how they can be combined in a specific context. This paper contributes to the fields of knowledge management and cluster theory by explaining how Tetra Pak works with internal knowledge and the integration of external knowledge and how they are consequently shared in the company to support innovative work.
