Providing an overview of industrial development using a variety of different approaches and perspectives, the Handbook of Industrial Development brings together expert contributors and highlights the current multiple and interdependent challenges that can only be addressed using an interdisciplinary approach.

Chapters discuss the existing issues faced by industry following both the digital and environmental transitions, highlighting their regional roots and the interplay with the wider institutional framework. Investigating the necessity for companies to design new products and production processes and also re-think their corporate responsibilities, this Handbook illustrates the need for a much broader vision taking into account historical, social, political and cultural viewpoints at all governmental levels. Furthermore, it takes an analytical look at further research, including insightful directions for future industrial development policies.

Answering complex policy questions for today, this crucial Handbook will be invaluable for policymakers looking for insights into sustainable industrial development as well as practitioners who are seeking an up-to-date comprehensive overview of the topic. Economic development and innovation scholars and researchers will also find the future research ideas interesting and informative.
Critical Acclaim
‘Industry is key not only to economic growth and jobs. Its ongoing transformation and a stronger and clearer directionality in policy action can critically contribute to establish sustainable development paths as well as to fight territorial imbalances. But how? This Handbook takes the challenge of unwinding this complex issue and analyses past experiences, potentials, limitations and perspectives for the future, adopting an intriguing multidisciplinary approach aimed at understanding both global and local stakes. An important contribution to the current efforts of both scientists and policymakers.’
– Alessandro Rainoldi, Joint Research Centre, European Commission, Spain

‘The global economy is undergoing dramatic change due to newly transparent geopolitical shifts and technological disruption. Technological disruption is due to a variety of technological paradigm shifts ranging from the Internet of Things to quantum computing to artificial intelligence. Climate change and related agricultural and health issues complicate management and policy issues still further. In order to ensure industrial development follows a better path, it is important to critically re-think the role of firms, technologies, industrial sectors and structures, the changing nature of work and labour markets, governance and public policy, and, in turn, their socio-economic impacts within regions, nation states and the global economy. This timely Handbook brings together leading scholars from several fields to explore these issues. Its collection of thought-provoking chapters will allow readers to challenge the conventional wisdom and to consider alternative possibilities for sustainable and more inclusive industrial development.’
– David J Teece, University of California, Berkeley, US

‘Our world is facing profound challenges that require a re-examination of cherished ideas. Early 2020 brought a pandemic, a global recession and an unprecedented reconfiguration of supply chains. The world now stares down a regional war of untold danger and hardship. Looking to the future, we will need hope and insight into a newly designed wealth-generating capacity taking into account social, environmental, political and industrial governance practices of a magnitude not seen since the first Industrial Revolution. This new Handbook of Industrial Development takes on such a task and it could not be more timely. Combining theory, sectoral analysis and multiple geographies while recognizing new societal imperatives, the book looks beyond Industry 4.0, interrogating up-to-the-minute developments in today''s industries while offering suggestions for future-oriented policy to tackle near- and long-term problems of equity and inclusion.’
– Amy Glasmeier, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US

‘This Handbook of Industrial Development will be central to academic research, teaching and industry engagement for decades to come. In an era when governments seek new ways to promote employment and re-build economic capacity this Handbook provides solutions to the conceptual and practical challenges many nations face in their efforts to establish and develop new industries. World-leading researchers provide fresh insights into the relationship between industrial development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the places of innovation, path development, sectoral policy and the challenges before governments. This Handbook is both timely and pivotal to advancing thinking and policy on the industry of the future.’
