The objective of the course is to give students knowledge about location aspects of innovation and trade, on the basis of various forms of scale economies as well as proximity and network externalities. The course will provide the student with a capacity to critically analyse economic problems relating to location, specialisation and trade for regions of different types. It will establish a competence in penetrating the reasons for how regions specialise and how they develop in a perspective of a global economy.

Important elements of the course are the following:
  • Static and dynamic comparative advantages, location advantages and spatial externalities.
  • Clusters and Regional Systems of Innovation.
