Innovation, Technology and Knowledge Hardback
Edited by Charlie Karlsson, Borje Johansson, Roger Stough
In the last four decades the developed economies have developed into veritable knowledge economies at the same time as more and more economies have entered the road to economic development.
Typical for the developments during this time has been substantially increased investments in research and development (R&D) to generate new knowledge and new technologies and increased investments in diffusing existing knowledge by means of education and thereby raising the volume of human capital.
However, many member states and regions within the EU are struggling with their economic development.
This book explores the uneven patterns of development within the EU, discusses the relative effect of investments on innovation and productivity growth and looks at the mechanisms involved in economic development and policy.
