9781849802765: Handbook of Innovation Systems and Developing Countries: Building Domestic Capabilities in a Global Setting (Elgar Original Reference)

The innovation systems (IS) approach emerged as a theoretical framework in the industrialized world in the mid-1990s to explain innovation and growth in the developed world. 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.

Spanning national, sectoral and regional innovation systems across Asia, Latin America and Africa, and written by the world's leading scholars within the field, this comprehensive Handbook will strongly appeal to academics, researchers and students with an interest in innovation and technology in developing countries.

Review:

`. . . this ambitious project definitely succeeds in putting together coherently a relatively recent body of research, and in arguing that a new policy approach to development is needed: one that puts knowledge accumulation at its core, that recognises the complex nature of learning processes and the need of new institutions to stimulate them. For the many who believe in the urgency of revising development strategies and policies in such a direction, this work is a must-read and a highly valuable teaching and reference aid. It is hoped that, as the editors themselves wish, it will serve as a stimulus for further theoretical and empirical efforts in this crucial field of research.' -- Elisabetta Marinelli, Science and Public Policy
