Technological change, economic development, and space
What are the most favourable conditions for the generation of innovative ideas and forms of enterprise? Can they be stimulated by intervention policies? To what extent does the injection of new technology stimulate local economic development? Do Science Parks really work? It is increasingly important in a world of global competition to be able to provide answers to these questions. There is an urgent need for positive guidance to achieving the necessary economic and physical "reshaping" of our cities and regions. This volume provides a compact in-depth investigation of these issues, bringing together the work of leading scholars from a number of different countries who present insights gained from both theoretical and empirical research.
