Spatial Resource Management

Location matters! Recent developments in economics and business highlight the importance of a region’s endowment with scarce resources as a major driver of strategic advantages for every type and size of firms. Thus, policy makers are concerned with providing the infrastructure necessary to attract high potential firms, either multinationals or young and entrepreneurial firms. Within this process, research intensive institutes play the key role by generating knowledge spillover effects for firms located in a short distance to absorb external knowledge. Complementary to research intensive institutions are higher education institutes such as universities as providers of human capital, financial intermediaries like banks and venture capitalists but also all circumstances that shape quality of life to attract and gain high potentials.
