The studied cases in the previous chapter generate wealth of knowledge and empirical evidence. These case studies also indicate the importance of tradition, strategic management, and mindset towards innovative development. All the cases are strongly committed to innovation and digitalisation. The cases perform differently according the statistical evidence giving indications for potential areas of improvement. Cases also share the significance of the Baltic Sea as one of their main international trade routes. This chapter provides a conclusion to this part of the book that looks into empirical evidence in better understanding the characteristics of geographies of innovation and disruption.
