Overview

Creative Regions examines diverse aspects of the knowledge economy that may influence regional innovation capabilities and generate advantage for regions in global markets. Uniquely, this book focuses on regional creativity, analysing a variety of factors that affect creativity in regional innovation processes under knowledge economy conditions. Approaching creativity from technological, organisational and regional viewpoints, the book analyses regional creativity from different perspectives and takes account of multi-level interactions in economy and policy.

The variety of papers presented examine: how regional actions can be creative and competitive, how research is outsourced and creative knowledge and innovation are transferred, types of technology-based cultural activities that are evolving, sources of creative and innovative knowledge entrepreneurship. Today, many of these processes are primarily market-driven but not completely so; thus Creative Regions demonstrates that multi-level policy sectors have significant roles to play in stimulating and promoting creative and innovative developmental actions. Creative Regions is essential reading on how regional advantage can be constructed for firms and agencies advancing in the global knowledge economy and will be of interest to students, researchers and policy makers working in this and related fields.
