Identification of technological districts: the case of Spain
AbstractIn recent years, the Marshallian concept of industrial district has been related to areas specialised in high technology and innovation, introducing in the literature the concept of technological district (TD). The important contribution of TDs to competitiveness and economic growth has increased the attention of researchers in order to improve the knowledge about these areas. In this line, the aim of this research is to identify TDs in Spain. A multivariate analysis has been applied to calculate a synthetic index to be used for the identification of the areas specialised in high and medium technology activities.
