In today‘s globalized world innovation plays a major role. For states, the generation of new knowledge through innovations impacts the economic development and the standard of living. For companies, innovation is crucial to achieve competitive advantage. Specifically the concept of Open Innovation has been advocated to improve innovative performance. This book explores the economics of Open Innovation in ‘Systems of Innovation‘ and related opportunities with a focus on the three main actors: firms, academia and the state.
