Our research focus

The dynamics of local and regional economic activities in a global production context through the eyes of entrepreneurs, companies and institutions

Our theoretical perspectives

A relational perspective, because economic actors do not act in isolation. They are embedded in a social context and mutually affect each other.

An evolutionary perspective, because economic actors do not act without a history. Their behaviour and decisions are preconditioned by the past.

A global production context perspective, because the behaviour and decisions of economic actors are increasingly affected by global competition and collaboration, which lead to local-global tensions.
