Abstract Location and innovation capacity have each been the subject of much scholarly attention but have mostly been considered independently rather than in combination with each other and from a multilevel perspective. In this special issue, we present implications of the link between location and innovation capacity and identify key topics, themes and issues for future research. We highlight the main contributions of the articles included in this special issue as they shed light on some unanswered questions and open avenues for future research. As such, this special issue is intended to provide an opportunity to advance our understanding of the specific features of location and innovation capacity. It addresses questions critical to this field of research, including new theoretical perspectives, emerging methodologies, and novel approaches and techniques, encouraging the examination of their impact in different contexts.
