summarises and documents collected information and results of the Møre
and Romsdal part of the research project RECIN (REgional Challenges and possibilities –
Innovation and value creation in business Networks). The focus in this report
is primarily empirical, while the theoretical implications will be further
developed in coming papers/articles. We have conducted a study of industrial network
structure, evolution, challenges and possibilities for further development of
the business network of maritime industries within the county of Møre and
Romsdal. The study is informed by a methodology developed at CIM (Centre for
International Manufacturing) at Cambridge University for the mapping, documentation
and analysis of industrial business networks.
Presented results are
based on available literature and qualitative interviews with selected
representatives from a variety of stakeholders within this business network and
associated governance actors.
Part one of the
report contains an overview of actors within this maritime industry, with key
figures and development patterns over the last decades. Part two describes a
common theoretical platform for mapping of industrial business systems and a
guide for survey interviews to be applied for all business networks within the
RECIN project. Part three describes the interview guide and the interview panel
for the survey.
Derived results are
discussed in part four, covering assessed advantages, driving forces, with international,
regional and company based perspectives. Innovation topics are particularly
treated and future prospects are discussed.
