Business and professional networks: scope and outcomes in Oxfordshire
AbstractThis paper examines the relationship between formal networks, such as business and occupationally based professional networks, and place in determining network patterns and types in regional economic development. It distinguishes between ‘network-rich’ and ‘network-poor’ regions and considers why and how formal networks operate as a service and a resource to participants and as components of regional business infrastructures. Formal networks in the Oxfordshire to Cambridge Arc in the UK are used to illustrate these points. Keywords: formal networks, place, public policy, regional infrastructures, Oxfordshire
