  5. Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories

    Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories

    Edited by Philip Cooke, Andrea Piccaluga
    Today, the study of regions is central to academic analysis and policy deliberation on how to respond to the rise of the knowledge economy. Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories illustrates how newer types of regional analysis – utilising scientometrics, knowledge services measures and university networks, and concepts such as knowledge life cycles, experimental knowledge creation, and knowledge ethics – are leading to a perception that regional economies increasingly resemble knowledge laboratories.

    Financial Systems, Corporate Investment in Innovation, and Venture Capital

    Edited by Anthony Bartzokas, Sunil Mani
    This book examines the role of venture capital institutions in financing technology-based ventures both in developed and developing countries.

These include setting up management teams and designing strategic plans for fledgling enterprises. The latter issue is operationalized through a series of carefully chosen case studies. Learn More

  11. Failing to Compete

    Failing to Compete

    Sanjaya Lall, Carlo Pietrobelli
    This unique study draws on extensive fieldwork assessing technology systems in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe in the context of their export competitiveness. Its emphasis is on the role of technology systems in building industrial competitiveness and in this it finds deficiencies in the systems in all these countries, though there are also significant differences between them. Comparisons are made with more successful economies, particularly those of East Asia, and policy implications are drawn for the strengthening of technology support systems. Central to the book is its combination of academic analysis with a strong policy focus – policy implications are drawn for each case-study country. Learn More

  17. Innovation in the Service Economy

    Innovation in the Service Economy

    Faïz Gallouj
    In this book Faïz Gallouj propounds a theoretical framework which describes and evaluates the main approaches to analysing and understanding innovation in services. He provides interesting and extensive empirical material on the nature and sources of innovation in various services sectors and countries, and makes an original contribution both to theories of innovation in services and theories of innovation in general. Taking both an evolutionary and conventionalist stance, he demonstrates that services, and more importantly innovations in services, can be regarded as the new wealth of nations. Learn More
