Empirical Insights: Effects of Distance

  • Juliane Hartig


In this chapter, the procedure and results of the extensive, cross-case study, comprising the 39 case co-operation projects, is presented. The aim is to analyse the (relative) impact and interplay of distance in different dimensions. Methodologically, the analyses combines a quantitative and a qualitative analysis (see Chapter 7). Thus, the answers to the closed-ended questions from the interviews are used for quantitative analysis. The interpretation of the results is based on the qualitative information from the open questions. Through this, the results can be triangulated and the conceptual framework can be further specified and expanded.
