Innovation is a major contributory factor to economic growth. How can it be encouraged?

This volume brings together recent contributions from a distinguished group of scholars from the UK, Europe, North America and Asia who examine a range of hitherto neglected issues, with the emphasis placed on the theoretical analysis of R&D cooperation.

Emphasizing the theoretical analysis of R&D cooperation, contributors from the UK, Europe, North America and Asia examine ways that innovation can be encouraged. Coverage includes a review of technology policy and the promotion of research joint ventures (RJVs); the performance and welfare implications of cartelized RJVs; the issue of copycat imitation in contrast to own-product development; a comparative analysis of international and national R&D cooperation in an integrated market; RJVs formed between asymmetric partners; and R&D expenditures over time.
