1. PRIME Series on Research and Innovation Policy in Europe

    Series editor: Philippe Larédo, ENPC, France

    The last decade has seen dramatic transformations in the configuration of national systems of innovation in Europe and in the way in which knowledge is produced. This important new series will provide a forum for the publication of high quality work analyzing these changes and proposing new frameworks for the future. In particular it will address the changing dynamics of knowledge production within the NBIC (Nano, Bio, Information, Cognitive) sciences and within different industries and services. It will also examine the changing relationship between science and society and the growing importance of both regional and European public authorities. The series will include some of the best empirical and theoretical work in the field with contributions from leading and emerging scholars.

    The Theory and Practice of Innovation Policy

    Edited by Ruud E. Smits, Stefan Kuhlmann, Phillip Shapira
    This comprehensive Handbook explores the interactions between the practice, policy, and theory of innovation. The goal is twofold: to increase insight into this dynamic process, searching for options to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of both policy and innovative practice, and to identify conceptual or empirical lacunae and questions that can guide future research. The Handbook is a joint project from 24 prominent scholars in the field, and although each chapter reveals the insights of its respective authors, two overarching theoretical perspectives provide unique coherence and consistency throughout.

  5. Universities and Strategic Knowledge Creation

    Universities and Strategic Knowledge Creation

    Edited by Andrea Bonaccorsi, Cinzia Daraio
    Although the role of universities in the knowledge society is increasingly significant, there remains a severe lack of systematic quantitative evidence at the micro-level, with virtually all policy discussion based on country level statistics or case studies. This book redresses the balance by examining original data from universities in six European countries – Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Learn More
