About the Authors
  • Innovation and technological change follow markedly different pathways depending on the sector in which they take place. Contributions from eighteen experts in their fields consider the framework of sectoral systems of innovation to analyze the innovation process, factors affecting innovation, the relationship between innovation and industry dynamics, changing boundaries and transformation of sectors, and the determinants of the innovation performance of firms and countries in different sectors.

    • Provides an original framework for the analysis of innovation in sectors
    • Analyses why innovation differs so greatly across industrial sectors and services
    • Compares European strengths and weaknesses in innovation in high-technology industries
