Co-ordonating Competencies and Knowledge in the European Automobile System - CoCKEAS, Final Report, EUR 23115

Project ID: HPSE-CT-1999-00022


The European thematic network CoCKEAS (Coordinating Competencies and Knowledge in the European Automobile System [EAS]) was an attempt to analyse all of the structural changes that affected the EAS via an approach focusing on the new issues involved in coordinating the competencies and knowledge of the system's actors. Bringing together13 research teams (including the GERPISA international network) from seven EU countries, CoCKEAS mostly looked at vertical relationships, intangible elements (finance, social usage) and changing geography of automobile production. Comparisons with other automobile regions (North America, Japan, the emerging countries) emphasised EAS distinctiveness. The following main findings reflect the sum total of the research output that was presented and discussed as part of the work that this thematic network achieved.
