Resource description

The concept of localized learning outlines how local conditions and spatial proximity betweenactors enable the formation of distinctive cognitive repertoires and influence the generation andselection of skills, processes and products within a field of knowledge or activity. The localizedlearning argument consists of two distinct yet related elements. One has to do with localizedcapabilities that enhance learning while the other concerns the possible benefits that firms withsimilar or related activities may accrue by locating in spatial proximity of one another. In this essay,we disentangle these two inherent elements of the concept, review some of the critique that hasbeen raised against it, and sort out some misunderstandings that we think are attached to its presentuse.
