Clusters as a tool of cooperation and formation of regional networks: evidences from Slovakia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aim of this paper is to examine the role of networking and to provide a kind of background theory for further empirical research, summarize basic knowledge and theories about clusters and networks based on available literary sources. Clusters are not easy to define and their classification is also not so clear, therefore this paper endeavours to clarify basic definitions, dynamics and typology of clusters and levels of networks so that it can serve as a conceptual frame for further empirical research. Finally, it will try to examine whether such clusters and networks do really exist in the Slovakian context and if they do, then whether they are comparable to those in Western European countries. - (BJ)
