Critical surveys edited by Stephen Roper innovation and space: A critical review of the literature
AbstractSimmie J. (2005) Innovation and space: a critical review of the literature. Regional Studies 39 , 789-804. This review examines the relationships between innovation and space. It does so by tracing the historical development of innovation theory and its subsequent linking at different stages with spatial and agglomeration theory in order to provide explanations about why the firms, organizations and institutions located in a minority of city-regions generate so much more innovation than those in the majority of cities. It addresses the key question about why a relative handful of city-regions are home to higher absolute and relative concentrations of innovation than most other types of area.
