Learning economy
Learning economy is ''an economy, where the ability to learn is
decisive for the economic success of individuals, firms, regions and
nations. Learning, in this context, does not just refer to the acquisition
of information or access to the sources of information, but also to the
development of new areas of competence and new skills'' (Lundvall
and Borras, 1999: 29).

Regional learning capability
Regional learning capability is defined as a regional innovation
system's ability to create and manage knowledge in a collective, interactive
and cumulative learning process leading to new settings of
resources, competences and skills (cf. Lundvall and Borras, 1999).
