Technology clusters: A cross-national analysis of geographical differences
AbstractThe study explores a topic almost neglected by geographers, providing a conceptual framework to analyze factors affecting technological inertia or change of regions. Path dependence is a concept able to explain how the past shapes the future also in innovation studies. Despite the key concept that in a sequence of events, the latter decision to adopt a technology depends on past decisions, the literature highlights the two main models of path dependence. The study offers some interesting elements for future research
