Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Growth 7,5 Credits

Course Contents

The objectives of the course are to provide knowledge and understanding of firms’ R&D and innovation strategies and their economy-wide consequences for development and economic growth. The course literature illuminates the current difficulties of empirical studies to establish a consistent picture of the relationship between R&D, innovation, entrepreneurship, and growth. The course aims at clarifying how persistent differences between firms can be related to sustaining differences in the innovation strategies that firms apply, where strategies comprise plans for building up and maintaining capabilities to carry out innovation activities. In this context firms also make use of internal and external knowledge sources that are unevenly distributed across space. These issues also extend the context to include development of trade flows and to new patterns of location.

Important elements of the course are the following:

• Innovation strategies.
• Networks of multinational corporations and R&D collaboration.
• Knowledge spillovers in a geographic context.
• The effects of innovation on competitiveness on firm, industry and aggregate level.
• Innovation system and policies.
• The role of innovation and entrepreneurship for economic renewal and long run growth.
