Sectoral Systems of Innovation

Lall, K. (Kaushalesh) ; Rousseva, R. (Rossiztza)

In this course, the students will develop in-depth understanding of Sectoral systems of innovation. In ten lectures, we will focus on basic concepts, theory, research questions and findings from recent empirical research. The course will introduce first the basic concepts of innovation systems, and then will focus on the sectoral systems of innovation. It will analyse the building blocks and interactions in sectoral systems of innovation; the role of knowledge, networks, actors and institutions; dynamics of sectoral systems of innovation; measurement of the performance of the system; and sectoral dynamics and innovation activities. The last four lectures of the course will present empirical studies of sectoral systems of innovation in two modern and three relatively traditional sectors.
