Edited by Urban Gråsjö, PhD, School of Business, Economics and IT, University West, Charlie Karlsson, Professor Emeritus of the Economics of Technological Change, Jönköping International Business School, Jönköping University and Professor Emeritus of Industrial Economics, Blekinge Institute of Technology and Iréne Bernhard, PhD, School of Business, Economics and IT, University West, Sweden

Developed countries must be incredibly innovative to secure incomes and welfare so that they may successfully compete against international rivals. This book focuses on two specific but interrelated aspects of innovation by incumbent firms and entrepreneurs, the role of geography and of open innovation.

‘By identifying the ways in which open innovation influences the ability of incumbents and potential entrepreneurs to innovate and to appropriate the benefits of innovation, this book elegantly presents modern innovation models, highlighting the role played by context conditions, and bringing fresh reflections into a never-ending debate.’
– Roberta Capello, Politecnico di Milano, Italy
