5th Geography of Innovation Conference (GEOINNO2020)Together with Ernest Miguelez (Bordeaux) , José-Luis Hervás-Oliver (Valencia), Ram Mudambi (Fox School of Business), Monica Plechero (Florence) and Julio Raffo (WIPO), we are organizing a Special Session on clusters and global innovation networks (GIN) at the 5th Geography of Innovation conference, to be held on January 29-31, 2020, in Stavanger, Norway. Here link to the Special Session–> http://geoinno2020.com/clusters-global-innovation-networks-and-the-globalization-of-knowledge/ 


The aim of this Special Session is to collect contributions at the interplay between innovation clusters and global innovation networks (GIN), or in other words, between regionalization and globalization of innovation activities. Within this, we intend to explore topics like how the connection between clusters supports the circulation of knowledge and global distribution of innovation activities, what type of GINs support linkages between clusters, what is the role of migrants and MNEs in building GINs favoring positive cluster evolution , cluster and GIN identification, clusters in the Global South and GINs, agglomerations and GINs, and so on. We aim to stimulate the study of phenomena from different lenses and angles, combining both theory and empirics, as well as macro, micro and meso approaches.
