Abstract [en]

In many regions the current focus of the state is to initiate and stimulate the emergence of inter-firm networks in order to produce growth. This book takes a management perspective on the operations and processes in these networks and describes and analyzes how and why geographical proximity influences inter-firm networks   The last twenty years have seen a change in the economic policies pursued in many countries. The focus is not on specific firms or on the market in general any longer, but instead specific relationships and networks between firms residing in a region are the object for policy-makers' priorities. A vast amount of public resources are now pooled into projects and programmes that follow these ideas. The state initiates and stimulates the emergence of inter-firm networks in order to produce growth in a specific region.    Both authorities' and firms' strategies are scrutinized as it displays how economic policy guides the inter-firm networks. These strategies do often differ, which make the networks difficult to manage for the actors involved, which makes this book an essential tool for those involved in these types of regional networks.
