Handbook of Research on Innovation and Clusters

Cases and Policies

Edited by 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, Sweden

The role of innovations and clusters has increasingly dominated local and regional development policies in recent decades. This authoritative and accessible Handbook considers important aspects of high-tech clusters, analyses insightful cluster case studies, and provides a number of recommendations for cluster policies.

‘This volume is an important step in furthering the discussion about how cluster strategies work and the implications for theory and policy.’
– Jennifer Clark, Review of Regional Studies
