Capo-Vicedo, Josep; Molina-Morales, F. Xavier; Capo, Jordi
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, v65 n4 p417-435 Apr 2013
Through this research we aim to contribute to the debate on the role of universities in industrial districts in the context of the new competitive panorama that they are facing. With this objective in mind, we have carried out a study based on a university located within a Spanish textile district, using Social Network Analysis techniques. Of particular relevance are the relationships between companies, of which there is a dense concentration, and the university, which has an important role as mediator within the network.
