Hide / Show Abstract

Innovation-driven growth is a major objective of the post-crisis recovery. Policy makers increasingly recognise the role that regions play in cultivating, attracting and retaining innovative people and firms. Indeed, it is cities and regions that are competing with each other in the global economy. Many regions are located along international borders, and thus working with cross-border neighbours may offer innovation-driven growth opportunities.
