Summary:pt. I. Innovation and development -- pt. II. Scales in innovation systems : theoretical progress and empirical overview -- pt. III. Building blocks in innovation systems in developing countries : challenges under globalization -- pt. IV. IS-based policies in the new global setting
This Handbook is the first attempt to adapt the IS approach to developing countries from a theoretical and empirical viewpoint. The Handbook brings eminent scholars in economics, innovation and development studies together with promising young researchers to review the literature and push theoretical boundaries. They critically review the IS approach and its adequacy for developing countries, discuss the relationship between IS and development, and address the question of how it should be adapted to the realities of developing nations
