The Evolution of Specialization: Public Research in the Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries

Aldo Geuna

Chapter 4 in Applied Evolutionary Economics, 2003 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: The expert contributors to this book examine recent developments in empirical methods and applied simulation in evolutionary economics. Using examples of innovation and technology in industry, it is the first book to address the following questions in a systematic manner: Can evolutionary economics use the same empirical methods as other research traditions in economics?; Is there a need for empirical methods appropriate to the subject matter chosen?; What is the relationship between appreciative theorising, case studies and more structured empirical methods?; and What is the relationship of modelling and simulation to empirical analysis?
