New horizons in the economics of innovation series


Lundvall (economics, Aalborg U., Denmark, and economics and management, Tringhua U., China) et al. bring together 12 essays by scholars in business, science and technology, and economics from Europe and Asia, who examine innovation systems and competence- building systems in Asia, which they view as being in transition. They discuss how national systems have upgraded their production structure through empirical examples, followed by case studies of four innovation systems in Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Korea. Science-based innovation in Japan, India, and Singapore, and policy learning in China comprise the final section. Essays were originally given as papers at the First Asialics Conference on Asian Innovation Systems and Clusters held in Bangkok in Spring 2004. The book, developed in connection with the networks GLOBELICS and ASIALICS, is meant for academics and postgraduate students and national and international policy organizations.
