COMPASS is a joint initiative of economic and business development agencies in Denmark, Finland, Germany and Sweden developing hands-on knowledge and supporting IT tools for inward investment promotion. The target of the project was to increase the competitiveness of the BSR regions by attracting sustainable private sector investments. This includes among other things the identification of growth industries and industrial clustering patterns in the participating BSR regions, the evaluation of the importance of hard versus soft site selection factors in business location decisions, suggestions for improvement in the economic development plans of the participating regions, the development of an IT-supported tool to carry out benchmarking of the jurisdictions competitive situation on a frequent basis as well as the promotion of the IT-tool as an easy-to-use and time-saving device for optimising the development of soft facts in a jurisdiction.The modules developed include:COMPASS Cluster Analysis - The knowledge about the structure of the local and regional economy is of paramount interest. COMPASS has developed an easy-to-use process and a supporting IT tool to carry out cluster analysis on a regional level. Training & workshops for regional business development agencies are available.COMPASS Site Selection - Everything in inward investment promotion depends on the knowledge of the customers requirements. COMPASS has developed an industry-specific database showing which site selection factors are valued most by investors.
