Abstract

In this paper the spatial dimensions of technological developments are discussed. Special attention is given to entrepreneurship and the factors favouring the rise of new enterprises. A major component of such an incubator profile, the information infrastructure, is discussed more thoroughly (inter alia on the basis of a cross-national comparison). Last, the implications for regional policy and technology policy are spelt out.
