Dealing with Dichotomies: Economic and Innovative Capacity on Bornholm
(English)Article in journal (Other academic) Submitted
The Danish island of Bornholm is currently dealing with the structural effects of globalization processes. This study traces Bornholm‟s economic and innovative capacity for economic development and provides a portrait of the traditional „root system‟ or core competency on Bornholm. Attempts to create greater innovative capacity and in turn economic capacity are documented according to a framework of analysis depicting knowledge resources, relational resources and mobilization capacity. The study discusses how a more contemporary core competency might be realized in the tourism and experience economy. Results show that dealing with its dichotomies could help Bornholm to achieve regional development and innovative capacity.
