AbstractThis research explores the innovation capacity of the two most important ceramic tile industrial districts in Europe, the Italian (Sassuolo) and the Spanish (Castellon) districts, following the Regional Innovation Systems and the Industrial Districts theoretical approaches. In both districts innovation is to play a definitive role in allowing companies to maintain their competitiveness in a globalising market. Our analysis shows i) a similar level of competition within the districts of both countries but a far weaker cooperation in the Spanish district compared to the Italian one. ii) The scarcity of technology and advanced services providers in the Spanish district relegates it to a follower role in the adoption process of innovation. And iii) in the Italian district the presence of horizontal technology enterprises raises the innovation intensity because of the technology diffusion across districts and also because it is favoured by the mobility of qualified workers.
