Dear friends and colleagues,
The purpose of this email is to announce that, together with Cristina Chaminade (Lund), José-Luis Hervás-Oliver (Valencia), Ram Mudambi (Fox School of Business), Monica Plechero (Florence) and Julio Raffo (WIPO), we are organizing a Special Session on clusters and global innovation networks (GIN) at the 5th Geography of Innovation conference, to be held on January 29-31, 2020, in Stavanger, Norway. Here link to the Special Session--> https://geoinno2020.com/clusters-global-innovation-networks-and-the-globalization-of-knowledge/
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS AUGUST 31, 2019!!!
Stavanger might be cold in winter, but I'm sure it will be a great occasion to know better the Viking culture, as they have exhibitions and sightseeing on the topic. But more important than that, the lineup of keynote speakers for this GEOINNO edition is, simply, awesome! Check it out-->https://geoinno2020.com/program/#speak
The aim of this Special Session is to collect contributions at the interplay between innovation clusters and global innovation networks (GIN), or in other words, between regionalization and globalization of innovation activities. Within this, we intend to explore topics like how the connection between clusters supports the circulation of knowledge and global distribution of innovation activities, what type of GINs support linkages between clusters, what is the role of migrants and MNEs in building GINs favoring positive cluster evolution , cluster and GIN identification, clusters in the Global South and GINs, agglomerations and GINs, and so on. We aim to stimulate the study of phenomena from different lenses and angles, combining both theory and empirics, as well as macro, micro and meso approaches.
Consider submitting your proposals to our Special Session!
Sorry again for double-posting, and look forward to meet you all in Stavanger!
All the best,
