Systems of Innovation

Luc Soete, Bart Verspagen and Bas ter Weel

Chapter Chapter 27 in Handbook of the Economics of Innovation, 2010, vol. 2, pp 1159-1180 from Elsevier

Abstract: We review the literature on national innovation systems. We first focus on the emergence of the concept of innovation systems, reviewing its historical origins and three main flavors (associated to three “founding fathers” of the concept). After this, we discuss how the notion of innovation systems filled a need for providing a broader basis for innovation policy. We conclude with some perspectives on the future of the innovation systems literature.
