torrerspppolgersppwalletrsppAndré Torre, Etienne Polge and Frederic Wallet (2019) - Proximities and the role of relational networks in innovation: The case of the dairy industry in two villages of the “green municipality” of Paragominas. Regional Science Policy & Practice 11(2), 279-294

"Interesting paper for showing structural differences between large- and small-scale productions, with an informative characterization and a clear presentation of integrated methods that allow the analysis of a local and global issue (deforestation) also looking into rural innovation. Somewhat descriptive and eclectic, but uses interview data and interesting methodology to examine spatial linkages and proximity effects using empirically testable models out of qualitative fieldwork. The principles clearly articulated in the paper can be applied in numerous different contexts across many countries and regions and will be of real interest to wide range of regional scientists tackling policy-relevant challenges in contexts where there is a paucity of secondary data. It is an enlightening Policy & Practice entry-level paper for a bright student to get his/her feet wet with this general topic."

The winner paper is free on-line until the end of August -
