Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is primarily to describe and analyse what the structure of a strategic network and the influence support from public authorities had on the network. The opinion among researchers' concerning public involvement differs; some argue that it is mainly negative while others claim that public support can be significant for the networks. The case presented in this paper shows that the effect of involvement from public authorities was more positive than negative, and that it even may be crucial for establishing of strategic networks among small and medium-sized enterprises. The case also indicates that the question of whether the development is initiated internally or externally is secondary. The involvement among the participants in the strategic network appears to be more vital. Hence, the creation of business involvement is a significant factor for the success of a strategic network and the structure of the network seems to be an essential part of this.
