Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to explore the connection between proximity and knowledge creation. As firms are acting in an increasingly distributed fashion, the understanding and analysis of complex knowledge creation cannot be restricted primarily to geographically close relations. Instead, in line with current theories on the actual spatiality of innovation and learning, it is suggested that an alternative view on proximity - relational proximity - better captures knowledge creation in transnational firms.
