Open innovation, knowledge co-creation, and research joint ven-tures, unified under the term 'inter-organizational knowledge collaboration', are discussed in various fields of innovation man-agement to ultimately shape inno-vation strategy of the organiza-tions and the innovation policy.
Several ongoing debates are crucial in the allocation of resources and division of labor with regards to the innovation system: industries vs. universities, who are the salient actors of the innovation system? Death of distance vs. geographical boundedness, does distance mat-ter? Network cohesion vs. struc-tural holes, where in the network is more fertile for innovation?
This book, discussing these de-bates, intends to direct the innovation strategy and policy.
