Combining innovation systems and global value chains for development: Towards a research agenda

Author(s): Roman Jurowetzki, Rasmus Lema & Bengt-Åke Lundvall
Working Paper No.: 2018-01
Keywords: National Innovations Systems, Global Value Chain, economic development, global economy

This paper contributes to ongoing work which seeks to bring together the national innovation systems and global value chain literature for the study of economic development. We depart from the view that such a new combination will be helpful both in enhancing the understanding of socioeconomic processes in developing countries and in building a more useful knowledge base for action. To this aim, we combine bibliometric analysis with a qualitative review of work from both bodies of literature. The purpose is to inform a research agenda suited for policy-relevant studies of economic development in the global economy.
