Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide insights into the geography of knowledge sources of low-tech industry in the European semi-periphery. Qualitative research based on semi-structured interviews with the company owners/managers was applied. The results show a significant role of global temporary clusters for enhancing competitiveness of low-tech firms competing in mature markets. In the case of Czech outdoor equipment industry, the “global buzz” at international trade fairs is accompanied by the informal networks of relationships stemming from the climbers’ community in times of state socialism. - (EN)
