The three papers presented here set out to explore network structures and collaboration in metropolitan regions in the Rust Belt, to attempt to both understand what the network structures look like relative to the extant literature and currently popular economic development policies and to explore how much collaboration is occurring in these regions. In addition, this is done using a quantifiable methodology in an easily replicable manner that can be used by others to develop a generalizable understanding of the role of networks and collaboration in economic development outcomes.
