    Abstract

    This paper reviews literature which clarifies the role of tacit knowledge in innovation. It then discusses the reasons for the continuing importance of tacit knowledge, despite rapid advances in codification. Models of innovation, however, appear to overlook the significance of the tacit dimension of knowledge, especially that associated with external advances in scientific knowledge. This is demonstrated by the results of a study of university/industry links in biotechnology, advanced engineering ceramics and parallel processing. Copyright 1995 by Oxford University Press.
