Abstract [en]

The understanding of economic development in regions in developed countries hasgone through a fundamental change during recent decades. Nowadays, regions areincreasingly looked upon as independent, dynamic market places that are connectedvia flows of interregional and international trade. Regional development is driven bychanges in the economic specialisation, which can be explained by two different, butcomplementary theoretical frameworks for analysing location and trade, one old andone new.

In this chapter, we claim that knowledge infrastructure, human capital, talent, creativity,knowledge generation, knowledge protection, knowledge accumulation, knowledgeappropriation, knowledge flows, etc. as well as the creative use of knowledge arebasic drivers of the specialisation of regions and hence of regional development. Thepurpose is to discuss the role of knowledge and talent in regional development seen inboth a regional and a global context.
