Local innovation systems: the role of public services and utilities

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research aims at carrying out an international comparative analysis of local innovation systems, in other to identify the factors that have prompted the success of some experiences as well as the problems that have caused the failure of others. The first phase will be a survey of theoretical models proposed to study processes of knowledge creation and diffusion at local level, and their interactions with business strategies on international markets. In addition, the available information on local innovation systems in the main countries will be systematically collected. Specific attention will be paid to public utilities as enablers of inter-organizational network or as "suppliers" and developers of a resource essential to the existence of the network. This will allow to assess activities and prospects of regional innovation poles located in Abruzzo, and to offer useful insights for business strategies and industrial policies.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
