Presentation of a study exploring why similar regions within countries pursue different commitment strategies towards growing their life science industries, especially in the face of a global shock such as the 2008 financial crisis. The roles of social learning and iterative bargaining become central, as well as a governance mechanism, the knowledge-oriented strategy team. Using the comparative case study method, the research design compares the industrialized, federalist country of Canada and its provinces in order to generate a national composite of regional differences.
