Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
This paper investigates the impact of specialization, diversifi cation, and competition externalities on the regional growth of employment in the high-tech industries of the European Economic Area (EEA). A dynamic panel dataset of twodigit NACE rev 1.1. industries in the EEA regions is used in this analysis. It is found that regional growth is positively related to specialization externalities and negatively to local competition, while diversifi cation has no impact on growth. (original abstract)
