  1. Innovation, Technology Policy and Regional Development

    Innovation, Technology Policy and Regional Development

    Edited by Tim Turpin, Xielin Liu, Sam Garrett-Jones, Peter Burns
    This book is the result of a comparative investigation that contrasts micro-systems of innovation in several regions of China and Australia – two vastly different countries in terms of traditions, industry structures, political systems and economic organisation. Six regional studies comprehensively document the experiences of firms engaged in product or process innovation. The book also examines the institutions that support research and development and the impact of government policies on innovation in each of the regions studied. Learn More

    Edited by Maria João Rodrigues

The book is an amalgamation of the scientific and political agendas which led to the European strategy for the knowledge-based economy adopted by the European Union. Learn More

  6. Research and Innovation Policies in the New Global Economy

    Research and Innovation Policies in the New Global Economy

    Edited by Philippe Larédo, Philippe Mustar
    The book analyses the evolution of research and innovation policies in the world’s leading countries. The last decade has witnessed a radical transformation of the landscape shaped after World War II, as described in the seminal collection edited by Richard Nelson in the early 1990s. Even though national systems have inherited different institutional arrangements and trajectories, analyses show three major converging trends in their public policies. There has been a retraction from support to large firms and programmes and a shift toward small to medium enterprises and the innovation infrastructure; the focus on public research and training capabilities is growing; and there has been a redesign of public intervention with the growing role of regions and states on one hand and multinational authorities on the other, particularly in the European Union.

  8. Technology and the Market

    Technology and the Market

    Edited by Rod Coombs, Ken Green, Albert Richards, Vivien Walsh
    The interplay between demand from the market, the role of users in shaping that demand, and the way in which these factors influence the innovation process has always been a complex one. This forward thinking book examines this interplay from a technological change perspective. The contributors explore the potential for rapprochement between economics, sociological and other social science disciplines in considering the allocation of resources and the making of decisions about technological change. The papers within this book represent a judicious blend of theory and empirical research and look at a broad range of innovations, markets and technologies in medicine, agricultural and food production, services and IT. Technology and the Market raises the question of the many ‘visible hands’ that are involved in linking technology and the market together. Learn More
