Authenticity renewal – institutions, innovation systems, and Cognac evolution (when the rules of the game don’t change)
AbstractThis paper draws on observations from a long-established network in France, located around the town of Cognac – site of distilled beverages with the same name.

The paper reveals that a thick institutional setting, which has been in place for more than a century and is being maintained to preserve the quality and authenticity of the Cognac product, also serve as enablers for new development among local firms
