This paper examines the impact of manager-level, firm-level and regional-level variables on the decisions of firms to collaborate with partners at different levels of geographical distance. The results indicate that collaboration is affected in different ways by variables related to the following levels (the region, elsewhere in the country and abroad, respectively). They highlight the need to balance policies for boosting regional social capital and R&D with investments in education and fostering openmindedness as a means to prevent lock-in and develop innovation-enhancing global pipe-lines
