About this book


This book investigates the roles of industrial clustering and of tertiary educational institutions in the development of industrial clusters and competitiveness. It examines the concept of regional development through industrial clustering to understand the relationships and factors influencing coopetition (cooperation and competition) between government, companies and tertiary educational institutions. In addition, the book proposes applicable models and methods for improving the dynamics of government, tertiary education, national research institutes and firms in order to improve the skills, knowledge, innovation and competitiveness of industrial clusters, using Thailand’s automotive cluster as a central case study.
