Abstract [en]

This paper explores how interregional links to universities may renew industry cluster development in a peripheral region. The empirical setting is an automobile testing cluster that emerged, grew and maturing in a remote Swedish region. The findings exemplify that whilst maturing, renewal opportunities were sought through linkages with universities located farther field. It is found that due to an imbalance of motives, challenges in developing the links were experienced. Yet the challenges are found to resolve through what we term an ‘interregional sensemaking process’; resulting in pipelines opening up to renew business activities in the setting. Implications for regional development arise and new avenues for future research are suggested.
