Secondly, we shall analyze how the industrial structure and the R&D-intensity have affected both regional development of the high technology sector and its capability to cope with economic trends. Third main objective of this research is to analyze how regional labour mobility has affected both agglomeration of the high technology firms and regional development of high technology industry.
