Further Details
Abstract Innovation is regarded as a spatially embedded process, in which the social and economic interactive relationships of the actors are an important factor for success. This paper is one of the first to empirically examine the role of organizations such as associations, clubs, societies and chambers of commerce and industry in innovative milieux. We find a limited effect of these actors on the regional competitiveness of the 60 largest German cities.
