Clusters in Time and Space: Understanding the Growth and Transformation of Life Science in Scania
(), Nilsson Magnus
() and Martin Svensson Henning
Abstract: This paper deals with the growth and development of the
Scanian life science cluster by revisiting a previous empirical study in
the light of new theoretical findings. It is argued that the transformation
of the Scanian cluster must be evaluated with reference to the general
development of the life science sector in Sweden as well as
internationally. Therefore the position of Scania in different systems of
regions must be taken into account. Patterns of functional interdependency
within as well as between regions thus need to be explored on equal terms.
This paper particularly highlights the importance of Stockholm/Uppsala for
the growth and evolution of the Scanian cluster.
