Do Regions Make a Difference? Regional Innovation Systems and Global Innovation Networks in the ICT Industry

Chaminade, Cristina LU and Plechero, Monica (2015) In European Planning Studies 23(2). p.215-237
Abstract
Access to global innovation networks (GINs) has been unequal across the regions of the world. While certain regions are considered knowledge hubs in GINs, others still remain marginalized; this points to the role of regional innovation systems (RISs) in the emergence and development of GINs. Using firm-level data collected through a survey and case studies in 2009-2010, this paper systematically compares the patterns of global networks in the information and communications technology industry in a selection of European, Chinese and Indian regions. The results show that GINs are more common in regions which are not organizationally and institutionally thick, suggesting that GINs may be a compensatory mechanism for weaknesses in the RIS.
