Discussing the Concepts of Cluster and Industrial District
Keywords: Industrial districts, clusters, conceptual analysis, rhetorics, European Commission.
AbstractThe significance and popularity of the cluster and industrial district concepts claim for a deeper reflection.

That way we answer the question of why and how cluster ideas have substituted industrial district principles and the consequences derived from that phenomenon.
