  2. Governance, Regulation and Innovation

    Governance, Regulation and Innovation

    Edited by Mehmet Ugur
    This book aims to disentangle the complex relationship between innovation and its potential determinants, paying special attention to the roles of governance and regulatory frameworks, and the ways in which the latter interact with other drivers of innovation such as competition and the innovator’s closeness to the technology frontier.

  4. The Innovation Union in Europe

    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 book provides a basic yet rigorous understanding of the current issues and problems of economic integration and innovation in Europe, and argues that national or regional economic development depends mainly on technical change, social and human capital, and knowledge creation and diffusion. This is clearly evident in the role of the quadruple innovation helix of government, university, industry and civil society. Learn More

  5. Intellectual Property Rights and the Financing of Technological Innovation

    Intellectual Property Rights and the Financing of Technological Innovation

    Carl Benedikt Frey
    Following the transition of industrial nations to knowledge economies, the financing of technological innovation has become a central issue in public policy, corporate finance and business management. This detailed book examines the role of intellectual property rights in facilitating the financing of technological innovation as well as the role of policy makers, investors and managers in this process. The book’s central finding is that public policy plays a key role in promoting the corporate disclosure of intellectual property-related information to enhance the efficiency of capital markets. This not only reduces the costs of capital for technology-driven firms but ultimately spurs innovation and economic growth. Learn More

    Patent Policy and Innovation

    Hazel V.J. Moir
    This empirical study uses a scientifically selected sample of patents to assess patent quality. The careful evaluation of the assumptions in alternative economic theories about the generation and diffusion of new knowledge demonstrates that the height of the inventive step is critical to effective and efficient patent policy.

  8. Multinationals and Economic Geography

    Multinationals and Economic Geography

    Simona Iammarino, Philip McCann
    After more than fifty years of systematic research on multinational enterprises (MNEs) what is apparent is that there is, as yet, no unified or dominant theory of the MNE. The objective of this book is to bring into focus one particular dimension of MNE behaviour and activity that has been relatively under-researched – namely the geography of the multinational enterprise – as understood through the lens of innovation and technological change. The authors clearly demonstrate that geography is becoming increasingly important for MNEs and, in turn, MNEs are becoming progressively more important for economic geography. The pivot on which this vital relationship turns is the creation, diffusion and management of new knowledge. Learn More

  9. 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

  10. Economic Organization, Industrial Dynamics and Development

    Economic Organization, Industrial Dynamics and Development

    Giovanni Dosi
    This volume collects some of Giovanni Dosi’s most important publications in the new millennium, following his earlier 2000 collection, Innovation, Organization and Economic Dynamics. It begins by offering quite a few advances in the analysis of individual learning in evolving environments, and of organizational structures and learning, thereby contributing to an emerging knowledge-centred theory of the firm and to a related theory of production. A second group of papers addresses the workings of markets, the importance of their institutional architectures, their diverse effectiveness as selection devices, and the evolutionary patterns of demand formation. A third set of chapters continues the exploration of the characteristics, drivers and performance outcomes of industrial evolution. The fourth part of the book is a reassessment of the role of history and path dependence in evolutionary processes. Finally, Part five addresses both the empirics and the modelling of the processes of growth and development nested into coupled evolution of technologies, corporate organizations and institutions Learn More

  11. Innovation, Global Change and Territorial Resilience

    Innovation, Global Change and Territorial Resilience

    Edited by Philip Cooke, Mario Davide Parrilli, José Luis Curbelo
    Localized creativity, small high-tech entrepreneurship, related innovation platforms, social capital embedded in dynamically open territorial communities and context-specific though continuously upgrading policy platforms are all means to face new challenges and to promote increased absorptive capacity within local and national territories. The contributors illustrate that these capabilities are much needed in the current globalized economy as a path towards sustainability and for creating new opportunities for their inhabitants. They analyse the challenges and development prospects of local/regional production systems internally, across territories, and in terms of their potential and territorial connectivity which can help exploit opportunities for proactive policy actions. This is increasingly relevant in the current climate, in which the balanced allocation of resources and opportunities, particularly for SMEs, cannot be expected to be the automatic result of the working of the market.

  12. 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.

  13. Technology Market Transactions

    Technology Market Transactions

    Frank Tietze
    Frank Tietze delivers an in-depth discussion of the impact of empirical results upon transaction cost theory, and in so doing, provides the means for better understanding technology transaction processes in general, and auctions in particular. Substantiating transaction cost theory with empirical auction data, the author goes on to explore how governance structures need to be designed for effective distributed innovation processes. He concludes that the auction mechanism is a viable transaction model, and illustrates that the auction design, as currently operated by market intermediaries, requires thorough adjustments. Various options for possible improvements are subsequently prescribed. Learn More

  14. Cycles, Crises and Innovation

    Cycles, Crises and Innovation

    Jerry Courvisanos
    Cycles, crises and innovation are the major economic forces that shape capitalist economies. Using a critical realist political economy approach, the analysis in this fine work is based on the works of Michał Kalecki and Joseph Schumpeter – both of whom identify these three dynamic forces as plotting the path of economic development. Jerry Courvisanos’ thought-provoking book examines how the rise of capital through investment enshrines innovation in profit and power which in turn determines the course of cycles and crises. The author concludes by arguing for strategic intervention by transformative eco-innovation as a public policy path to ecologically sustainable development. Learn More

  15. Inverse Infrastructures

    Inverse Infrastructures

    Edited by Tineke M. Egyedi, Donna C. Mehos
    The notion of inverse infrastructures – that is, bottom-up, user-driven, self-organizing networks – gives us a fresh perspective on the omnipresent infrastructure systems that support our economy and structure our way of living. This fascinating book considers the emergence of inverse infrastructures as a new phenomenon that will have a vast impact on consumers, industry and policy. Using a wide range of theories, from institutional economics to complex adaptive systems, it explores the mechanisms and incentives for the rise of these alternatives to large-scale infrastructures and points to their potential disruptive effect on conventional markets and governance models.

  17. Economic Development as a Learning Process

    Economic Development as a Learning Process

    Edited by Franco Malerba, Richard R. Nelson
    Until recently, economists studying economic development have tended to consider it a universal process, or focussed their attention on common aspects. This book originates from the growing recognition of significant sectoral differences in economic development and examines the catching-up process in five different economic sectors: pharmaceuticals, telecommunications equipment, semiconductors, software, and agro-food industries. Each of these sector studies explore the learning and catch-up processes in various developing countries, in order to identify both the common features, and those which differ significantly across sectors and nations. The authors pay particular attention to China, India, Brazil, Korea and Taiwan. Learn More

  20. Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Second Tier Regions

    Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Second Tier Regions

    Heike Mayer
    Second tier high-tech regions are taking a different path than their well-known counterparts such as Silicon Valley or Route 128 around Boston. They may lack many prerequisites of growth such as a world-class research university or high levels of venture capital funding. Often, however, they can successfully leverage anchor firms and entrepreneurial spinoffs. This book explores the evolution of these regions in the United States. Learn More
