Abstract: This paper focuses on the organization and geography of interactions between firms and other organizations in two industries: software and autoparts. In contrast to most recent literature in economic geography that argues that industries differ in their knowledge bases and that consequently different industries show different patterns of local-global interactions, our results show stronger differences between regions in the same industry than between industries in the same region, thus pointing out to other factors explaining the geography of innovation in that particular industry.
