Further Details
Abstract In Madrid, as in other metropolitan regions, the interest in the agglomeration of economic activities, along with the present perspectives of metropolitan competitiveness and the emerging knowledge-based economy, converge on the field of industrial clusters. In this paper we follow the current recommendations about combining mapping strategies. Firstly with a quantitative identification of industrial complexes in the region, considering as an initial hypothesis the existence of significant input-output relationships among co-located industries. Secondly, the qualitative information from politically selected clusters was used to refine the quantitative cluster identification and to evaluate the creation of new firms within Madrid’s manufacturing clusters.
