Sciences-Po Toulouse and the LEREPS, in partenership with EUROLIO and CIRCLE, are organizing the third Conference "Geography of Innovation", which will take place in Toulouse, from January 28 to 30, 2016.
The Geography of Innovation Conference provides a forum for discussion to scholars interested in scientific, policy and strategic issues concerning the spatial dimension of innovation activities. Plenary sessions, presentations and workshops will gather together some of the world’s leading thinkers working on innovation and related dynamics of technological, institutional and geographical change. In line with the two previous editions of the conference, held in Saint Etienne (France) in 2012, and in Utrecht (Netherlands) in 2014, the main objective of this event is to bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines ranging from economic geography and regional science, economics and management science, sociology and network theory, or political and planning sciences.
The conference invites contributions in a wide range of topics underlying the geography of innovation such as: global and local dynamics of innovation, science and technology policy, cluster competitiveness, firms R&D strategies, entrepreneurships, innovation systems, sustainable and social innovation, industrial dynamics and innovation networks.
