This book begins with a theoretical examination of regional innovation systems, agglomeration economics and knowledge spillovers, before going on to examine the same concepts within an empirical framework.

Special emphasis is given to the importance of proximity in the formation of regional innovation systems. More about this item Book Chapters The following chapters of this book are listed in IDEAS.

In recent years, the regional economic development literature has devoted a great deal of attention to dynamic knowledge externalities and to industrial clusters as sources of innovation. It is argued here that this literature has tended to neglect the importance of long-distance collaboration and knowledge : N.

Hansen. Innovation clusters spatially where knowledge externalities reduce the costs of scientific discovery and commercialization. In addition, Feldman (a) suggests that firms producing innovations tend to be located in areas where there are necessary resources: resources that have accumulated due to a region's past success with by: Regional Knowledge Economies: Markets, Clusters and Innovation (New Horizons in Regional Science) Philip Cooke, Carla De Laurentis, Franz Todtling, Michaela Trippl This original and timely book presents the most comprehensive, empirically based analysis of clustering dynamics in the high-technology sector across liberal and co-ordinated.

The book’s theoretical approach incorporates diverse geographies (e.g. global, national and regional) and political-economic forces (e.g. discourses, governance and finance) in order to understand where innovation happens in the life sciences, where and how value circulates in the life sciences, and who captures the value produced in life.

Abstract: In recent years, the regional economic development literature has devoted a great deal of attention to dynamic knowledge externalities and to industrial clusters as sources of innovation.

We thus suggest that even where, for example, the average level of R&D or other knowledge-creation investment remains unchanged, an increase in the average degree of openness in a sector may result in beneficial externalities which may raise the innovation productivity of Cited by: Creative Regions and Clusters) can be explained as centers of knowledge creation and innovation.

Emphasis is put on regional variety of skills and competencies where the unplanned interaction among different actors might lead to new and unexpected ideas and creative designs, products, services and business concepts, as in [1].

The volume aims to produce an updated collection of advanced theories and methods in the field of urban policies, and highlights modern urban policies that stem from them.

Contributions stress the limits of previous theories and methods, and emphasize the new directions that are developed in the field, and barriers that are overcome, providing in this way a dynamic perspective on.

Employing data for Swedish functional regions, the paper tests the role of the variety (related and unrelated) and intensity of (1) internal knowledge generated within the region and also (2) external knowledge networks flowing into the region in explaining regional innovation Cited by: Table of Contents.
