Knowledge, Industry and Environment: Institutions and Innovation in Territorial Perspective
There has been a great deal of interest in the idea of the knowledge economy in recent years, yet the geography of the relationships between the knowledge economy and the environmental imperatives that now confront societies everywhere remain poorly understood. This captivating book addresses the neglected but vitally important nexus between knowledge, industry and environment by developing new conceptualizations that are investigated in a diverse range of world-wide case studies.The volume provides an understanding of the territorial workings out of the knowledge economy and integrates the processes of regional industrial development and environmentalism so often conceived as separate literatures. Throughout the book, four key themes are explored: institution building strategies; agglomeration as territorial context; sustainable industrial-environmental processes; globalization, learning and industrial location dynamics. The collection culminates with a look at future research directions and pleas for policies that realize the potential of both the knowledge and green economies.
