About this product
- DescriptionInvation and techlogical change show different rates, types and trajectories depending on the sector in which they take place. Agents and institutions of a sector all exert a major influence on invation. With contributions from nineteen experts in their field, this book proposes the framework of the 'sectoral systems of invation' to analyse the invation process, the factors affecting invation, the relationship between invation and industry dynamics, the changing boundaries and transformation of sectors, and the determinants of the international performance of firms and countries in different sectors. Invation in a sector is considered to be affected by three groups of variables: kwledge and techlogies; actors and networks; and institutions. In addition to the general framework, this book examines invation in six major sectors in Europe including pharmaceuticals and biotechlogy, telecommunications equipment and services, chemicals, software, machine tools and services.
