This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the similarities and differences in the practice of local and regional economic development (LRED) across England, Australia, the United States, and Northern Ireland. The findings indicate that while organisations from different nations often share objectives, strategies, and types of partner, it is possible to identify distinctive institutional architectures in each. The differences can be seen in the variation in the emphasis given to the needs of businesses, partnership building, technology transfer, and the relationship with governments.

Keywords: LRED; England; Australia; United States; Northern Ireland; institutional architecture; businesses; partnership building; technology transfer
