The project will provide detailed analysis of the role of extra-regional sources in regional industrial change and economic growth in different types of region in Czechia. Thus, the project will investigate the following research questions. RQ1: What are the intensity and spatial patterns of collaborative and contract research networks in terms of orientation towards extra-regional knowledge partners? RQ2: What are the intensity and spatial patterns of exogenous sources (in terms of corporate takeovers and foreign direct investments) in different types of regions? RQ3: How and in what ways do extra-regional sources (mentioned in RQ1 and RQ2) influence the probability of developing a specific type of path in different kinds of regions? (i.e. path upgrading, path diversification, path importation and path creation). RQ4: What are the positive and negative effects (e.g. on regional performance, unemployment etc.) of inflow of extra-regional assets and knowledge (e.g. via corporate takeovers) on regional industrial path development in different types of region? RQ5: How actors in different Czech regions mobilize knowledge from the outside and why do regions differ in their capacity to trigger new paths?
