Frequency and befefits of regional networks within the German capital goods industry. Based on a representative study, the paper focuses on how frequent regional networking occurs, which firms cooperate in networks more often than others, and which benefits come with regional networks for participating firms. Extending the approach of earlier studies, the paper measures effects of regional networkd by observing specefic performance, characteristics, immediately depending onto the networking activity. The empirical results show that networks offer synergies. Surprisingly, low-profit firms are particularly often engaged in regional networks.
