About this product
- DescriptionThere has been much discussion about the importance of networks for regional ecomic development and kwledge dissemination. However, the inflationary use of the tion networks is often based on rather metaphorical, at worst fuzzy meanings. This book explores ways for more rigorous research on kwledge networks, critically discussing quantitative social network analysis. A theoretical framework for meaningful interpretations in quantitative network research is developed. Afterwards, the mograph links social network analysis to research on localised kwledge spillovers. Here the role of communities and networks of kwledge workers is investigated. The book illustrates how social network analysis can provide fruitful perspectives for further research on kwledge flows.
