Overview

This volume provides a collection of theoretical articles and empirical studies on innovation and location by focusing on the institutions and systems that mediate knowledge spillovers. The objective is to provide an international comparison using a variety of approaches. The volume is organized around the three themes. The first focuses on theoretical work that attempts to advance our understanding of knowledge externalities and systems on innovation. The second section provides empirical studies that attempt to measure these impacts. The final section considers future challenges to regional economic development policy in the face of economic integration and globalization.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Mixing economics and geography, Feldman (Johns Hopkins U., US) and Massard (U. Jean Monnet Saint Etienne, France) present a series of 16 essays that attempt to answer questions related to the influence of the nature of knowledge and its consequences on proximity effects, what the public or private sources of externalities are, whether there are unequal absorption capacities that differ between firms and systems and determine the capture of the available flows of knowledge, and what the mechanisms of knowledge spillovers and transmission are. Consisting of both theoretical articles and empirical studies, the articles provide an international comparison using around a variety of approaches. The volume is organized around three themes: theoretical work on knowledge externalities and systems of innovation, empirical studies on the impact of externalities and systems of innovations, and future challenges to regional economic development policy in the face of economic integration and globalization.
