Learning for Innovation in the Global Knowledge Economy by Dimitrios Konstadakopulos
Book DescriptionThis book is a major step forward in understanding the learning behaviour of clustered technology-intensive small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Drawing upon qualitative and quantitative research methods and sampling techniques, it identifies how learning for innovation is stimulated or inhibited. The reader is encouraged to consider: - how the institutional context and local setting influence the learning behaviour and innovative capacity of high technology SMEs - the evolutionary development of technological policies in the European Union (EU) and the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN), and the scope of EUASEAN technological co-operation - how regional SMEs network and collaborate with each other with regard to innovation - whether common patterns of learning behaviour and co-operation are present within surveyed SMEs situated in the West of England M4/M5 corridors and the Singapore-Johor (Malaysia) cross-border area - the principal factors that underpin innovative behaviour - how to further facilitate the development of regional SMEs' innovative activities in the context of globalisation An informative, challenging and comprehensive empirical study and analysis, this book will be useful to scholars and students of regional development, European and Asian relations, development economics, and management studies. It will also be a valuable reference to decision-makers, policy analysts and international businessmen seeking to understand how the process of learning and acquisition of knowledge could improve the innovative performance, growth and competitiveness of firms in which they are located.
