Workshop on Innovation and Space

With the project Peripheral but Global: World Market Leaders outside of Agglomerations it is aimed to examine how economically successful companies located in peripheral areas of Germany are embedded in translocal (global) networks and how they manage to create and maintain translocal knowledge flows in order to shape their innovation processes.

Departing from debates on the relation between innovation and space in economic geography, the workshop takes its starting point in recent relational and evolutionary concepts which overcome a static, rather placed-bound view on actors and innovation. Participants will discuss concepts of knowledge, networks and space, which are utilized in order to enhance the current understanding of dynamics in innovation processes. A second aim of the workshop is to discuss new quantitative and qualitative methodological and empirical approaches used to trace knowledge flows and relations of economic actors.
