The Oxford Handbook of Innovation

Edited by Jan Fagerberg, David C. Mowery, and Richard R. Nelson

Oxford Handbooks

This handbook looks to provide academics and students with a comprehensive and holistic understanding of the phenomenon of innovation. The editors of The Oxford Handbook of Innovation have carefully selected and designed twenty-one contributions from leading academic experts within their particular field, each focusing on a specific aspect of innovation. These have been organized into four main sections, the first of which looks at the creation of innovations, with particular focus on firms and networks. Section Two provides an account of the wider systematic setting influencing innovation and the role of institutions and organizations in this context. Section Three explores some of the diversity in the working of innovation over time and across different sectors of the economy, and Section Four focuses on the consequences of innovation with respect to economic growth, international competitiveness, and employment.
