Proximity and regional innovation processes: is there space for new reflections?

In: Regional Development and Proximity Relations

  • Roberta Capello

Abstract

The notion of proximity is increasing in popularity in economic and geographic literature, and is now commonly used by scholars in regional science and spatial economics. Few academic works, however, have explored the link between regional development and proximity relations. This comprehensive book redresses the balance with its assessment of the role of, and obstacles caused by, proximity relations in regional development processes.
