    The Innovation Union in Europe

    Edited by Elias G. Carayannis, George M. Korres
    One of the most important economic events in recent decades has been the ongoing process of European integration.

This is clearly evident in the role of the quadruple innovation helix of government, university, industry and civil society. Learn More

  16. Strategy, Innovation and the Theory of the Firm

    Strategy, Innovation and the Theory of the Firm

    David J. Teece
    David Teece is one of the leading thinkers on issues of strategic management, particularly the importance of dynamic capabilities for organizations in industries undergoing change. This collection of his papers explores ideas of both theoretical and practical significance. Topics addressed include the development and elaboration of the dynamic capabilities framework, with an emphasis on the orchestration of resources both inside and outside the firm to capture value. Another area of focus is the theoretical and conceptual understanding of the essence of the firm. In an era of global specialization, mainstream theories about contracts and production functions fall short of the reality that managers confront every day. David Teece’s understanding of these realities is well reflected and clearly articulated in this book. Learn More

  18. Managing Open Innovation

    Managing Open Innovation

    André Spithoven, Peter Teirlinck, Dirk Frantzen
    Open innovation is about firms’ external relations with other firms and organisations. It is a topic which has attracted an immense amount of attention, but which has also been heavily criticised due to the diversity of the ideas and fuzziness of its key concepts. To date, the bulk of the literature on open innovation draws on case study material to illustrate the operation of firms in an anecdotal way. By contrast, this book examines open innovation practices by using large-scale datasets and stresses their impact on firm performance. The authors examine four key issues: differences between firms in open innovation practices, public funding to enhance external relations, R&D outsourcing of firms, and the role of human resources in R&D and innovation.
