Specialisation, Regional Clusters and Competitiveness - Regional Competitiveness Strategies
Procuring Authority: OECD
The Specialization, Regional Clusters and Competitiveness – Regional Competitiveness Strategies project, undertaken by the OECD in co-operation with NUTEK (the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth), and EIIR is designed to ascertain the extent to which public policy can play an effective role in (re)shaping the economic future of regions and the significance of regional specialization and clusters in that future. This involves addressing how regions react to the changes in their economic structures brought about by globalization, notably the shift from production-oriented regional economies to economies that focus on non-production activities. The issues are addressed through the lens of the ongoing transformation of key industries, both mature and high-growth sectors, in advanced and less advanced regions.
