Dramatic shifts in technology policy in Western countries over the last decade, have effected significant changes at both the level of the firm itself and the economy in general. At the forefront, are developments in technological alliance, concurrent engineering and the upskilling of the labour force.
In this single volume, experts from the United States, Canada, France and the United Kingdom explain the institutional changes in these countries, whilst analysing current debates surrounding the trends highlighted. Together, the contributions develop the concept of national systems, shedding valuable light on the relationship between national policy objectives and the structure and performance of public and private institutions adjusting to the adoption of new technology.
