Varieties of Innovation Systems – The Governance of Knowledge Transfer in Europe

This book investigates the governance structures and mechanisms of knowledge and technology transfer in the context of innovation and production systems of Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom. For that purpose, Michael Ortiz develops a new and innovative heuristic governance model of knowledge transfer systems. Against the assumption of far-reaching institutional coherence and homogeneity of national systems in existing scholarship, he demonstrates that national innovation and production systems are regionally variegated. With analyses of strengths and weaknesses, barriers, shortcomings, and dilemmas of regional innovation and knowledge transfer systems, the book ultimately identifies best practice models and policy recommendations for the investigated regions.
