The track invites to reflect on the determinants of competitiveness from a bottom-up, firm-level perspective. A focus on competitiveness centered on firms remains underexplored in the management literature. The drivers of national and regional competitiveness building on the interplay of firms, clusters, sub-national units and entire economies bring different yet complementary views up for academic discussion, with relevant theoretical and practical implications.
The track aims to unveil the ultimate determinants of a nation’s or region’s productivity, rooted in the strategies and operating practices of locally-based firms, the vitality of clusters, and the quality of the business environment in which competition takes place. Submissions addressing the roles that firms, industry associations, universities, and other institutions play in competitiveness are encouraged. In modern international competition, each of these institutions has an important role in economic development that is shifting. Moreover, the process of creating and sustaining an economic strategy for a nation or region is a daunting challenge. Submissions are likely to explore not only theory and policy but also the organizational structures, institutional structures, and change processes required for sustained improvements in competitiveness.

Opportunity for peer-reviewed publications
Books publishers and special issues that may welcome the track’s best papers:
Competitiveness Review (Emerald)
International Journal of Competitiveness (Inderscience)
• Additionally, the corresponding proponent is currently discussing a (text)book proposal, which could potentially include the topic’s best papers.

Researching Real Estate Economics

Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, has published a peer-reviewed article with the title “Concordance of office market cycles? Dynamics in European metropolises in the context of the financial and economic crisis”. The paper is joint work together with Robert Musil from the Austrian Academy of Sciences. It is published in the well-established, peer-reviewed German journal “Zeitschrift für Wirtschaftsgeographie”. The topic of the paper is strongly related to the LBS study program Strategic Finance & Business Analytics.
