Resituating Proximity and Knowledge Cross-fertilization in Clusters by Means of International Trade Fairs
Tecnologico de Monterrey.
2008 (English)In: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 16, no 5, 643-663 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper elaborates a proximity framework and provides empirical evidence of how knowledge cross-fertilization is instigated at international trade fairs (ITFs) and continued in a cluster network. This paper applies a case study method relying on social network analysis to explore the knowledge cross-fertilization initiated at ITFs and furthered at a Swedish cluster. The findings suggest that firms participating at ITFs translate and re-articulate the acquired external knowledge through their interactions in the cluster network. Creating awareness of the ITFs' influence on innovation is significant for policy-makers and scholars.
