Local innovation capacity: a typology for Basque Counties
The article reflects on the right territorial unit to analyse innovation processes, proposing a multilevel approach and taking a step towards developing it in the Basque Country. From an empirical point of view, it contributes to the relatively scarce literature on the study of the interrelations between innovation systems, agglomerations and entrepreneurship. Connected to these three concepts, 21 indicators have been used to carry out a cluster analysis following an initial principal components analysis with the results of a typology that group the 20 Basque counties into 5 different classes: 1) capital-urban zones with a diverse industry mix; 2) advanced industrial agglomerations; 3) industrial agglomerations with average technological performance 4) small industrial counties and 5) small rural counties.
