Article
Although the European Union's (EU) Common Agricultural Policy was intended as sectoral, its recent reforms lead to a stronger territorial vocation, allowing for possible overlaps with the objectives of the Cohesion Policy, the main regional policy of the EU. Through a threshold regression approach, we explore if the possible interactions between th...
Chapter
Mega-projects play a foremost role not only in developed countries, but mainly in developing countries in several respects: political dynamics, social effects, and economic fallout (see Bovensiepen and Meitzner Yoder in Asia Pac J Anthropol 19(5):381–394, 2018, [4]). As correctly stated by van Wee and Tavasszy in Decision-making on mega-projects—co...
Chapter
The issue of the local provision of public services has becoming important in Italy due to several changes that have been implemented in the last years by the national government in the regulation of state owned companies and in the regulation of public services (or services of general economic interest). The regulatory role of national or local go...
Chapter
The Industry 4.0 Italian plan is the new attempt of the National Government in Italy to adopt a comprehensive industrial policy aimed to adapt the industrial sector to the new trajectories of manufacturing. A variety of policy plans and interventions have been recently developed in order to sustain these processes everywhere in Europe. The 9 enabli...
Article
The paper explores the heterogeneity behind the production of innovation at the regional level. We empirically estimate the innovation equation with EU regional data using either patents or innovative sales in the region as dependent variable. The empirical model accounts for external, spillover, effects and allows for parameter heterogeneity among...
Article
The accumulation of knowledge, human capital and agglomeration are indicated as prominent sources of externalities. Therefore, this study examines their contributions to the economic growth of regions in Europe, while accounting for non-linear and threshold effects as well as spatial dependence. The results highlight differentiated growth patterns...
Article
A growing proportion of innovation, especially in consumer-based industries, is linked to both aesthetic and symbolic components, yet there is still wide uncertainty as to how consumers respond to the design of products and whether their product choices are consistent across product categories. We draw attention to instances whereby less technology...
Article
This paper examines the dynamic of income distribution in European regions and attempts to relate movements within this distribution to regional structural characteristics and to the impact of cohesion policy (CP). There is evidence that CP supports advanced economic development in lagging and peripheral regions, hence contributing to the ‘converge...

Entrepreneurship is among the most important elements for the evaluation of the local territorial development and it is certainly a meaningful indicator to understand interregional differences in economic development. Traditional explanations of entrepreneurship rely on evaluating the role of characteristics of the macro environment (profitability,...

Among the different sources of regional growth, agglomeration economies, both internal to regions and external to regions (spillovers) play a primary role. However the presence of agglomeration economies may obstacle the path toward cohesion making rich (poor) regions become richer (poorer). While, according to New Growth Theory and New Economic Ge...

European container terminals of Mediterranean are enjoying of a discovery on the more dynamics routes of the whole world that link Europe to Far East-Pacific. This centrality consists in the acquisition of a relative advantage in terms of 6 -7 days less of navigation respect to big ports of call of North Europe. In this framework, the new installat...
Article
The aim of this paper is to investigate economic de velopment in EU regions, focusing on spatial aspects involved in convergence matters. St andard neo-classical analysis is centered on convergence tests 'à-la-Barro' , while an alternati ve approach proposed by Quah (Quah, 1993) suggest the use of transition probabilities matrix to analyze income d...

In this paper we investigated the per-capita income convergence process among extended EU regions during the period 1995-2004. Start- ing from neo-classical analysis we have further applied spatial econo- metric tools to explore the role of spatial heterogeneity and spatial spillovers in regional convergence process. Since spatial spillovers ap- pe...
