1. Science, Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship series

    Series editors: Elias G. Carayannis, George Washington University, US and Aris Kaloudis, NIFU STEP Studies in Innovation, Research and Education, Oslo, Norway

    There is ample and growing evidence that intangible resources such as knowledge, know-how and social capital will prove to be the coal, oil, and diamonds of the 21st century for developed, developing, and emerging economies alike. Moreover, there are strong indications and emerging trends that there are qualitative and quantitative differences between the drivers of economic growth in the 20th and 21st centuries. This new era is punctuated by: * Development of a service-based economy, with activities demanding intellectual content becoming more pervasive and decisive * Increased emphasis on higher education and life-long learning to make effective use of the rapidly expanding knowledge base * Massive investments in research and development, training, education, software, branding, marketing, logistics and similar services * Intensification of competition between enterprises and nations based on new product design, marketing methods and organizational forms * Continual restructuring of economies to cope with constant change This valuable new series concentrates on these important areas by focussing on the key pillars of science, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.

    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
