dc.description.abstractThis paper analyses regional growth in Eastern Europe in the second half of the 1990s, when regionaldisparities sharply increased. We aim to identify the factors behind growth and investigate inparticular the role of (foreign) investment, education and innovation as well as geographical factors ina model of economic growth. The key relationships are estimated with spatial econometric tools onempirical data for the period 1995-2000. We find that foreign direct investment was paramount forgrowth in that period. EU border regions and capital areas clearly outperformed others. Further,regional growth clusters have appeared. Surprisingly, the high level of secondary education played norole to growth. Higher education, in contrast, was important, also for technology transfer.-
