Over the past two decades, profound structural transformations have reshaped the worlds of production and led to the reconfiguration of industrial ecosystems in advanced countries and regions. The geography of production (and trade) has been redesigned along “glo-cal” networks and production cycles involving heterogeneous organisations operating across regional and national boundaries. Sectoral boundaries have been also blurring as a result of global processes of vertical disintegration and industrial reorganization, while new symbiotic cross-sectoral relationships have developed. Finally, technological change and the rapid scaling up and diffusion of emerging technologies (robotization and digitalisation in particular), as well as technology system integration, have resulted in the “genetic mutation” of traditionally defined sectors, forced the diffusion of new organisational models and led to new forms of industrial agglomeration.
