The number of publicly funded initiatives to establish or strengthen networks and clusters, in order to enhance innovation, has been increasing. The returns of such investments vary, and the aim of this study is to explore to what extent the variation in benefits for firms participating in such networks or clusters can be explained by their dynamic capabilities (DC). Based on survey data from five Norwegian networks, the results suggest that firms with higher DC are more successful in harvesting the potential benefits of being member of a network.
