ABSTRACTThe role of the cultural and creative industries (CCIs) in fostering innovation and growth in the wider economy has been much debated, beginning with Bakhshi et al. (2008) seminal contribution. Such studies of creative industries assign a strategic role to territories, but they provide little empirical evidence. In this paper, the issues of the creative economy are combined with evolutionary economic geography topics to understand whether the CCIs are able to foster innovation and growth...

ABSTRACTThis paper investigates the role of design in making firms eco-innovate. Going beyond the ‘packed’ approach of environmental studies about ‘eco-design’, we maintain that the eco-innovative impact of design is correlated with the firm’s decision to invest in it. In turn, design investment is assumed connected with the use firms make of design. By pooling the Eurobarometer 2015 and 2016 surveys, we test for these arguments with respect to a sample of nearly 4500 European and non-European (...

There is ample evidence of regions diversifying in new occupations that are related to pre- existing activities in the region. However, it is still poorly understood through which mechanisms related diversification operates. To unpack relatedness, we distinguish between three mechanisms: complementarity (interdependent tasks), similarity (sharing similar skills) and local synergy (based on pure co-location). We propose a measure for each of these relatedness dimensions and assess their impact on...

ABSTRACTThis article aims to analyse and compare the patent collaboration networks of Spain and Sweden during the Second Industrial Revolution, a key period for technological and industrial development in several economies and the distinct development paths taken by these two countries. The data used are from two new historical patent datasets for Spain and Sweden for the period 1878–1914. To study the structure of collaboration networks in both countries, we applied social network analysis meth...

ABSTRACTThis paper examines the effect of an industry leader’s exploratory innovation, defined as the innovation embodying novel knowledge relative to the firm’s extant knowledge, on the performanc...
ABSTRACTThe paper explores whether venture capital (VC) and private equity (PE) investments have complementary or substitute effects on innovation in high-tech entrepreneurial firms in different institutional settings, focusing on different levels of capital market development, entrepreneurial culture, and intellectual property rights protection. Using a panel sample of 326 firms from 12 EU countries observed from 2009–2013, the empirical results show that the VC/PE effect on high-tech entrepren...
