Abstract:We use a combination of measures of spatial concentration, qualitative input-output analysis and innovation interaction matrices to identify the horizontal and vertical dimension of industrial clusters in Saxony in 2005. We describe the spatial allocation of the industrial clusters and show possibilities of vertical interaction of clusters based on intermediate goods flows. With the help of region and sector-specific knowledge interaction matrices we are able to show that a sole focus on intermediate goods flows limits the identification of innovative actors in industrial clusters, as knowledge flows and intermediate goods flows do not show any major overlaps.
Abstract (Translated):Der Beitrag kombiniert die Nutzung eines Konzentrationsmaßes mit der Qualitativen Input-Output Analyse sowie Innovations-Interaktions-Matrizen zur Identifikation der horizontalen und vertikalen Dimension industrieller Cluster in Sachsen im Jahr 2005. Wir beschreiben unter Verwendung dieser neuen Methodik die räumliche Allokation industrieller Clusterstrukturen und weisen nach, dass bei einer Fokussierung der empirischen Clusterforschung auf Input-Output-Methoden wesentliche Teile des Forschungsnetzwerkes industrieller Cluster unidentifiziert bleiben.
