Date: 27/02/2015


Interactions between firms and universities are key building blocks of innovation systems. With a focus on developing countries, this book presents novel comparative research spanning three continents. The editors (Eduardo Albuquerque of Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil, and colleagues) present a universal and dynamic view of the shaping and reshaping of interactions between firms and universities within different countries at various stages of development. Students of innovation, evolutionary economics, science and technology studies and development studies will find the original research to be of great value. This book will also appeal to public research organizations and policy makers. (IDRC, 30/01/2015)
