Tourism and cross border regional innovation systems

Weidenfeld, Adi (2013) Tourism and cross border regional innovation systems. Annals of Tourism Research, 42 . pp. 191-213. ISSN 0160-7383 [Article] (doi:10.1016/j.annals.2013.01.003)


While the impact of the geographic conditions of cross border regions on learning processes have recently attracted attention, the potential contribution of tourism and its
mobilities to facilitating innovative processes in cross border regions has been ignored. The paper examines the role of tourism knowledge transfer and innovation in the context of
European cross border regional innovation systems. It questions whether intensive movement of people, across relatively open international borders, influences knowledge transfer and diffusion of innovations. A conceptual framework including aspects related to mobility, connectivity, internationalisation, socio-cultural proximity and governance dimensions is suggested for future research studies. The paper highlights possible implications for EU cross border regional funded initiatives and policies.
