Show Summary Details


This chapter synthesizes the findings of the case studies in this volume. These include the convergence of old local productive systems and weak national models towards models of networked firms, new high-tech activities, and the rise of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) despite new governance patterns in steel cities. Governance modes, local collective competition goods production, and policy implications are discussed.

Keywords: local productive systems; SMEs; LCCGs; governance; territorialization
