This book explores the interactions between the practice, policy, and theory of innovation. The goal is twofold: to increase insight into this dynamic process, searching for options to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of both policy and innovative practice, and to identify conceptual or empirical lacunae and questions that can guide future research.

This volume is a valuable contribution to the growing literature on innovation systems and innovation policy. It gives the reader a strong grip on the latest thinking in the field on both sides of the Atlantic, while at the same time providing a solid grounding in the classics.
