Global Bioregions: Knowledge Domains, Capabilities and Innovation System Networks
AbstractIn this paper, regional capabilities and knowledge domain theses are proposed and global biotechnology dynamics are analysed. Detailed research on Europe's leading bioeconomy, the UK, is presented. Global network analysis is performed based on research into collaborations between 'star' scientists and their institutes in bioregions at a global scale. This is with regard to joint publication of bioscientific articles in US and EU Science Citation Index representative and leading cited journals. New evidence lies in identifying the hierarchical structure and main network axes in the global bioscientific research system. The results show that the strongest bioregions are in North America, particularly around Boston, San Diego and San Francisco. For collaboration, using this measure, the UK is revealed as a strong European research base, as is Sweden. New bioregions are found rising in Asia, but many 'global cities' fail to appear in the bioregional ranking.
