Innovation and regional economic development: A matter of perspective?

Book or journal references : Research Policy, vol. 34, pp. 1220-1234 (2005).

Author(s) : Howells , J.

Abstract :

This paper investigates the issue of innovation policy within a regional context. It is presented that the perspective one takes is important both in how one interprets the processes and relationships involved, but also in the way one identifies barriers and problems in policy formation and how one resolves them. The paper explores a number of contrasting perspectives in relation to innovation policy and the regions and seeks to highlight the implications of this both for policy, but also in the development of our conceptual understanding about innovation and geography.
