The regional anchoring of companies is becoming more and more of a strategic advantage for companies and regions. Bundling and networking of regional potentials create favourable prerequisites for a parallel development of regions, companies and networks.
This book outlines a proactive examination of change processes with the aid of the Learning Regions approach. It presents the concept of Learning Regions for the first time in a comprehensive way and the economic method of evaluation provides new impulses for a new understanding of the development of regions.
