Innovation and regional transformation: From clusters to new combinations
2010 (English)Book (Other academic)Text
In summary, this book considers the conditions for a future innovation policy in Skåne from two perspectives. Firstly, from the existing economic structure; and secondly, from the experience gained from initiatives already in place. With a common theoretical understanding of the problem area, the book integrates a number of methodologically different approaches. Such a combination of methods is rare, yet provides a deeper understanding of the nature of the economy, of how the various sectors and industries are related to each other in terms of skills, and of how development initiatives for the various industries or clusters work. Theoretical discussions are intertwined with empirical observations of Skåne’s economy. In this way, the book is an introduction to contemporary innovation and policy literature, as well as a more specific discussion and decision basis for actors involved in the economy and policy of both Skåne and Sweden.
