Workshop on National innovation systems and global value chains

Workshop on National innovation systems and global value chains
Copenhagen, 22 May 2015

National innovation systems and global value chains is one of the core research areas of EuroLics. Therefore, several members of EuroLics attended a workshop on this theme arranged by the Globelics secretariat in May 2015.

The purpose of the workshop was to:

  1. Clarify conceptual issues related to the national innovation system and global value chain approaches.
  2. Discuss a research program that aims at clarifying to what degree the national innovation system approach and the global value chain approach are complementary when it comes to understanding and building the link between innovation and development.
  3. Get a better understanding of policy implications that can be derived from the two approaches.
  4. Explore the potential for developing one or more research projects that can use the Globelics platform for meetings and exchange of ideas.
