Using data from an original and unique firm-level survey conducted in Southeast Asia, this paper examines the impacts of shifting from exploiting internal resources to exploring external information sources on product innovations and engaging foreign market for firms in emerging economies. This paper explores how the impacts of a shift toward external links vary across knowledge resources from trade and non-trade partners as well as across domestic and international partners. We also present fin...
Achieving global food security sustainably is a great challenge in the 21st century. This paper proposes that orphan crop innovation has the potential to help address this need. Using the case study of cassava bread in Nigeria, it demonstrates the barriers to and mechanisms for developing innovation systems for orphan crops. It finds that the goal-oriented search for cassava bread was successful, but the wider systemic weakness that its invention was supposed to address required further interven...

Some European countries have benefited from programs involving the creation of alliances of techno-socio-economic networks. In developing countries, their competitiveness based on industrial clusters are non-existent because of their poor regional enabling conditions required for assembling complex organisational interactions. To help alleviate this situation, a 'wealth creation based on innovation and enabling technologies' model (WIT) was developed. Within this framework, the economic growth i...
E-democracy is becoming an important topic for research after the global boom in the internet and the social media influence on societies. Using electronic channels for different aspects of democracy is becoming a necessity more than a luxury. This research tries to investigate the influence of e-government on the democratic process. E-democracy is conceptually linked to e-government, where previous research indicated such inclusion. This research proposed a framework that depicts the dimensions...

The mobility of individuals represents a crucial mechanism through which knowledge flows across organisations, in the labour market and between places. There has been an increasing policy attention to the mobility of scientific researchers at various stages of their careers, especially for doctoral students and doctoral graduates in bridging the gaps between science and innovation closer. This paper focuses on one of the collaborative doctoral training schemes between academia and industry - a c...

In the 21st century, a highly skilled workforce has become one of the resources seen as essential to support the knowledge economies. This paper attempts to draw a picture of the career and mobility of PhD graduates in the Social Sciences and the Humanities (SSH). International trends can be seen in the Hungarian job market for SSH PhDs, and the non-academic sector has also appeared, but its demand for SSH graduates is very limited. According to our findings, the demand for knowledge is slowly c...
The successful development of China's town and village enterprises (TVEs) has significantly absorbed enormous rural labour surplus during the agricultural transformation and the process of urbanisation between 1984 and 2014. TVEs played an important role in poverty reduction and increasing income for rural labours in China, when markets were dysfunctional and institutions were changing during the 1980s and 1990s. Assessments have concluded that Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has similar challenges and...

The rising powers have become the default movers and shakers in the global economy, including the green economy. This article shows how China has become more powerful in renewable energy and examines the implications for the green transformation. China exerts strong downward pressure on the costs of the transformation but the effects on the speed of this transformation are not yet clear. The paper suggests that a focus on public-private-civic alliances within and across countries is essential fo...
