The geography of innovation by Maryann P Feldman( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 224 libraries worldwide
This book offers a geographic dimension to the study of innovation and product commercialization. Building on the literature in economics and geography, this book demonstrates that product innovation clusters spatially in regions which provide concentrations of the knowledge needed for the commercialization process. The book develops a conceptual model which links the location of new product innovations to the sources of these knowledge inputs. The geographic concentration of this knowledge fonns a technological infrastructure which promotes infonnation transfers, and lowers the risks and the costs of engaging in innovative activity. Empirical estimation confinns that the location of product innovation is related to the underlying technological infrastructure, and that the location of the knowledge inputs are mutually reinforcing in defining a region's competitive advantage. The book concludes by considering the policy implications of these fmdings for both private finns and state governments. This work is intended for academics, policy practitioners and students in the fields of innovation and technological change, geography and regional science, and economic development. This work is part of a larger research effort to understand why the location of innovative activity varies spatially, specifically the externalities and increasing returns which accrue to location. xi Acknowledgements This work has benefitted greatly from discussions with friends and colleagues. I wish to specifically note the contribution of Mark Kamlet, Wes Cohen, Richard Florida, Zoltan Acs and David Audretsch. I would like to thank Gail Cohen Shaivitz for her dedication in editing the final manuscript

Innovation policy in the knowledge-based economy by Maryann P Feldman( Book )
10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 136 libraries worldwide
Scholars in the science and technology field have not collectively questioned, much less proposed, an agenda for policy makers. Now is an appropriate time for such an undertaking. First, there is a growing belief that the U.S. national research and development system, like that of many industrial nations, is changing due to global competitive pressures and advancements in information technology and electronic commerce. Second, industry's R & D relationship with the academic research community is changing not only because of the global competition but also because of alterations in the level of government support of fundamental research. As a result, policy makers will need to rethink their approaches to science and technology issues. This volume is a collection of essays by scholars about innovative policy in the knowledge-based economy. By knowledge-based economy we mean one for which economic growth is based on the creation, distribution, and use of technology. As such, innovation policy in such an economy must enhance the creation, distribution, and use of knowledge that leads to the creation, distribution, and use of technology. This volume considers elements of an innovation policy: innovation policy and academic research, innovation policy in electronic commerce, and innovation policy and globalization issues
Institutions and systems in the geography of innovation by Maryann P Feldman( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
This volume provides a collection of theoretical articles and empirical studies on innovation and location by focusing on the institutions and systems that mediate knowledge spillovers. The objective is to provide an international comparison using a variety of approaches. The volume is organized around the three themes. The first focuses on theoretical work that attempts to advance our understanding of knowledge externalities and systems on innovation. The second section provides empirical studies that attempt to measure these impacts. The final section considers future challenges to regional economic development policy in the face of economic integration and globalization
Beyond territory : dynamic geographies of knowledge creation, diffusion, and innovation by Harald Bathelt( Book )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 122 libraries worldwide
"The main purpose of the book is to discuss new trends in the dynamic geography of innovation and argue that in an era of increasing globalization, two trends seem quite dominant: rigid territorial models of innovation, and localized configurations of innovative activities. The book brings together scholars who are working on these topics. Rather than focusing on established concepts and theories, the book aims to question narrow explanations, rigid territorializations, and simplistic policy frameworks; it provides evidence that innovation, while not exclusively dependent on regional contexts, can be influenced by place-specific attributes. The study of innovation encompasses an increasingly wide and rich field of conceptual and empirical studies and debates, which span across disciplinary boundaries in the social sciences. This book identifies the key debates, new streams of inquiry and progress in research related to the transfer, circulation and generation of knowledge in a spatial perspective. The book is organized into three subheadings: place-specific aspects of specialization and diversity; evolutionary spatio-sectoral dynamics; and bridging the local and the global divide. It is the aggregate of all of these contributions that offers an exclusive insight into the dynamic geographies of knowledge creation, diffusion and innovation, well beyond the traditional territorial approach. This volume contains new empirical and conceptual work by an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars from areas such as economic geography, innovation studies, and political science"--
The impact and organization of publicly-funded research and development in the European Community by Maryann P Feldman( Book )
14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
This paper examines R & D activities in the European Community using the Community R & D Information Service (CORDIS) databases. We find that a country's private companies tend to be specialized in the same scientific fields as its universities and public organizations. In addition, we construct indicators of the degree of R & D tacitness and find that greater expected ability to communicate research outcomes encourages less centralized R & D programs. Programs that yield tangible results are less geographically and administratively centralized. The more that research leads to codifiable knowledge, the less centralized R & D activity needs to be
New perspectives in international business research by European International Business Academy( Book )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
This volume of "Progress in International Business Research" proposes new perspectives in IB research by addressing a number of critical issues which criss-cross the fields of International Business and International Management. More specifically, the topics dealt with in the volume feature in four discreet sections. The contributions in the first part concern the management of cultural distance across countries. In the second part, internal and external solutions to corporate governance problems are proposed, making use of the concept of 'jurisdictional advantage'. The third part focuses on the genesis and development of international entrepreneurs. The last part of the volume discusses the nature and impact of technology and of international expansion. The volume intends to provide fresh new insights in the field of IB research, insights which will interest business and management scholars, senior executives and policy-makers, and all those interested in the relationship and combination of corporate competitive advantage with jurisdictional advantage
Jurisdictional advantage by Maryann P Feldman( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Our objective in this paper is to define jurisdictional advantage, the recognition that location is critical to firms' innovative success and that every location has unique assets that are not easily replicated. The purpose is to be normative and policy oriented. Drawing from the well-developed literature on corporate strategy, we consider analogies to cities in their search for competitive advantage. In contrast to the more passive term locational advantage, our use of the term jurisdiction denotes geographically-defined legal and political decision-making authority and coordination. Thus, jurisdictions may be constructed and managed to promote a coherent activity set. We review recent advances in our understanding of patterns of urban specialization and the composition of activities within cities, which suggest strategies that may generate economic growth as well as those strategies to avoid. This paper then considers the role of firms and their responsibility to jurisdictions in light of the net benefits received from place-specific externalities, and concludes by considering the challenges to implementing jurisdictional advantage
Innovative clusters and the industry life cycle by David B Audretsch( Book )
12 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 33 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this paper is to link the propensity for innovative activity to cluster spatially to the stage of the industry life cycle. The theory of knowledge spillovers, based on the knowledge production function for innovative activity, suggests that geographic proximity matters most in industries where tacit knowledge plays an important role in the generation of innovative activity. According to the emerging literature on the industry life cycle, tacit knowledge plays the most important role during the early stages of the industry life cycle. Based on a data base that identifies innovative activity for individual states and specific industries in the United States, the empirical evidence suggests that the propensity for innovative activity to concentrate geographically is shaped by the stage of the industry life cycle. The generation of new economic knowledge tends to result in a greater propensity for innovative activity to cluster during the early stages of the industry life cycle, and to be more highly dispersed during the mature and declining stages of the life cycle, particularly after controlling for the extent to which the location of production is geographically concentrated

Competing on standards? : entrepreneurship, intellectual property and the platform paradox by Timothy S Simcoe( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
This paper studies the intellectual property strategy of firms that participate in the formal standards process. Specifically, we examine litigation rates in a sample of patents disclosed to thirteen voluntary Standard Setting Organizations (SSOs). We find that SSO patents have a relatively high litigation rate, and that SSO patents assigned to small firms are litigated more often than those of large publicly-traded firms. We also estimate a series of difference-in-differences models and find that small-firm litigation rates increase following a patent's disclosure to an SSO while those of large firms remain unchanged or decline. We interpret this result as evidence of a "platform paradox"--While small entrepreneurial firms rely on open standards to lower the fixed cost of innovation, these firms are also more likely to pursue an aggressive IP strategy that may undermine the openness of a new standard
