Knowledge transfer and technology diffusion.


Knowledge transfer and technology diffusion.

Ed. by Paul L. Robertson and David Jacobson.

Edward Elgar Publishing


345 pages




Contributors mostly from Europe, but also India, Taiwan, and Australia address some questions associated with the diffusion of new knowledge to and within businesses that use low and medium technology. They identify mechanisms that such companies use to gain access to new knowledge developed externally, then to transform it to meet their own goals. Their topics include resources and innovation in a cluster of industries in Spain and Italy, the role of company networks in low-technology industries, engineering versus craftsmanship in innovation in the electric guitar business 1945-84, and lessons from China's home electronics sector for how industries in developing countries compete with multinationals.
