The Global Dimension of Innovation Systems: Linking Innovation Systems and Global Value Chains

In: Handbook of Innovation Systems and Developing Countries


  • Carlo Pietrobelli
  • Roberta Rabellotti


This Handbook is the first attempt to adapt the IS approach to developing countries from a theoretical and empirical viewpoint. The Handbook brings eminent scholars in economics, innovation and development studies together with promising young researchers to review the literature and push theoretical boundaries. They critically review the IS approach and its adequacy for developing countries, discuss the relationship between IS and development, and address the question of how it should be adapted to the realities of developing nations.
