The Competitiveness Review aims to be the leading platform for academic research and conceptual policy dialogue on the competitiveness of locations. Competitiveness, understood as the set of factors, institutions and activities that enable a location to sustain a high level of prosperity and companies located there to compete successfully, requires an inclusive, cross-discipline perspective.
The theme of this issue is ‘Clusters at the crossroad between competitiveness of firms, industries and locations’. The study of clusters has not only kept the attention of scholars and academics but is also of particular interest for practitioners and politics. Research papers and applied projects on clusters have been flourishing in the past decade, both in developed economies and emerging markets, at the firm, industrial, geographical level. To help support and develop the cluster theory, understand its effects on the economy and foster cluster-oriented projects, the editors of Competitiveness Review have pulled together a selection of recent articles to help spread the knowledge on clusters to the community.
