Clusterwettbewerbe: Eine Option für Entwicklungsländer?
[Cluster competitions: An option for developing countries?]
AbstractCluster policy has gained remarkable prominence in regional and sectoral structural policy in industrialized countries. Instead of compensating for weaknesses it focuses on strengths in the local and regional economic structure. In Germany, handing out regional development funds in competitions has been tried. This instrument is intended to promote the use of cluster potentials on the local and regional levels. But is this instrument applicable in development policy, too? In this context, some conditions and constraints have to be considered.
