One size fits all? Towards a differentiated regional innovation policy approach

Book or journal references : Research Policy, vol. 34, pp. 1203-1219 (2005).

Author(s) : Todlting , F. and Trippl , M.

Abstract :

Innovation has moved to the foreground in regional policy in the last decade. Concrete policies were shaped by "best practice models" derived from high-tech areas and well performing regions. These are often applied in a similar way across many types of regions. Here an attempt is made to show that there is no "ideal model" for innovation policy as innovation activities differ strongly between central, peripheral and old industrial areas. In this paper we analyse different types of regions with respect to their preconditions for innovation, networking and innovation barriers. Based on this classification different policy options and strategies are developed. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
