Innovation Systems and Capabilities in Developing Regions

30 August 2012

Concepts, Issues and Cases

Much of what we know about innovation theory and systems has come from the developed countries and reflects their world view. Innovation Systems and Capabilities in Developing Regions adds to the growing body of knowledge about innovation and innovation systems in developing countries.

The case studies presented here advance the notion that, while developing countries may not engage in frontier research, a critical knowledge base from which these countries compete in global markets is emerging. State and non-state actors are increasingly emphasising policies that sit within the framework of national innovation systems.

This book illuminates this shift in policy competence at national levels. It also provides empirical evidence on the drivers, dynamics and impact of diffusion-based innovation linked to technology transfer and acquisition in developing economies, and the constraints that apply.
