    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in Swedish Två observationer tjänar som utgångspunkt för denna avhandling: (1) globaliseringens allt snabbare och mer eller mindre gränslösa flöde av information har medfört ökad press på företag och organisationer, liksom stater och regioner, att ständigt förnya sig för att kunna behålla sin konkurrenskraft. (2) kunskapsintensiv industri tenderar att samlas i geografisk närhet till relaterad verksamhet, ofta i direkt anslutning till universitet och andra forskningsinstitutioner. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the causes and effects of spatial clustering of similar and related economic activity. The relationship between spatial clustering and industrial competitive-ness is analysed in a series of empirical studies, revolving around four research questions: How useful is an institutional approach in analyses of spatial clustering? Can the link between spatial clustering and industrial performance be empirically validated and measured by quantitative methods? In what sense does spatial clustering promote localised processes of learning and innovation? What role can industrial and regional policies play in promoting the type of localised processes emphasised in spatial clustering research?It proves to be a rather complicated matter to measure the impact of spatial clustering on firm performance.
