Edward Elgar, Jan 1, 2004 - Business & Economics - 241 pages
'. . . the book is an accessible and valuable addition to the debate. Balanced with a discussion of the theoretical conception of the knowledge economy is a strong use of international case studies, which makes the book an informative read for anyone interested in the knowledge economy.' - Jessica Barker, Town Planning Review Today, the study of regions is central to academic analysis and policy deliberation on how to respond to the rise of the knowledge economy. Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories illustrates how newer types of regional analysis - utilising scientometrics, knowledge services measures and university networks, and concepts such as knowledge life cycles, experimental knowledge creation, and knowledge ethics - are leading to a perception that regional economies increasingly resemble knowledge laboratories.
