  1. The Life Cycle of Clusters

    The Life Cycle of Clusters

    Edited by Dirk Fornahl, Robert Hassink
    One-size-fits-all cluster policies have been rightly criticized in the literature. One promising approach is to focus cluster policies on the specific needs of firms depending on the stage of development (emergence, growth, sustainment or decline) their cluster is in. In this highly insightful book, these stage-specific cluster policies are analysed and evaluated. Moreover, several chapters also focus on smart specialization policies to promote regional development by taking into account the emergence and adaptation of clusters and industries. Learn More

    Agglomeration, Clusters and Entrepreneurship

  3. Regional Competitiveness and Smart Specialization in Europe

    Regional Competitiveness and Smart Specialization in Europe

    Mark Thissen, Frank van Oort, Dario Diodato, Arjan Ruijs
    Regions economically differ from each other – they compete in different products and geographical spaces, exhibit different strengths and weaknesses, and provide different possibilities for growth and development. What fosters growth in one region may hamper it in another. This highly original book presents an accessible methodology for identifying competitors and their particular circumstances in Europe, discusses regional competitiveness from a conceptual perspective and explores both past and future regional development policies in Europe.

  5. Market Platforms, Industrial Clusters and Small Business Dynamics

    Market Platforms, Industrial Clusters and Small Business Dynamics

    Ding Ke
    Specialized markets are a unique product of China’s economic transition. They are marketplaces located in industrial clusters, specializing in the wholesale of local commodities and related goods. Ding Ke reveals that, despite their seemingly primitive form, specialized markets appeared in many of the modern industrial sectors and were paradoxically upgraded and expanded as these clusters developed. He argues that specialized markets have also formed solid linkages with marketplaces in various cities in China and in other developing economies. A powerful, emerging market-oriented distribution system has thus appeared. Based on thorough fieldwork covering ten years, and using the novel theory of the platform, this book clarifies the unique development logic of specialized markets. Learn More

    Susana Borrás, Dimitrios Tsagdis
    This book provides a systematic, comprehensive, and independent comparative study of cluster policies in Europe.

    Creative Cities, Cultural Clusters and Local Economic Development

    Edited by Philip Cooke, Luciana Lazzeretti
    This book analyses the economic development of cities from the ‘cultural economy’ and ‘creative industry’ perspectives, examining and differentiating them as two related but distinct segments of contemporary city economies. The authors argue that although they are normally conflated, the first is largely subsidized while the second is highly entrepreneurial hence they actually make very different kinds of contribution to a city’s character, attractiveness and competitiveness.
