Since the pioneering work scholars such as Joseph Schumpeter and Peter Drucker, the fields of innovation and entrepreneurship have evolved to become two separate and distinct disciplines. Schumpeter 1 focused on the contributions of entrepreneurial startups and smaller firms, whereas Schumpeter 2 emphasized the role of formal research, development and industrial innovation in larger firms. Unfortunately, the study and practice of each field has suffered as a result: entrepreneurship has become preoccupied with individual entrepreneurs and small business creation, and innovation is dominated by corporate R&D and new product development. Promoting Innovation in New Ventures and Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) aims to bridge these two fields by examining innovation in new ventures and SMEs. This book identifies themes which can reunite the study and practice of entrepreneurship and innovation by examining a potentially bridging phenomenon. The focus here is on high growth, innovative SMEs, and the interactions between SMEs and larger organizations, private and public. It is organized around three overlapping themes: SME innovation performance, practices and networks.

There are two traditional views of the role of intellectual property (IP) within the field of innovation management: in innovation management research, as an indicator or proxy for innovation inputs or outputs, e.g. patents or licensing income; or in innovation management practice, as a means of protecting knowledge. Exploiting Intellectual Property to Promote Innovation and Create Value argues that whilst both of these perspectives are useful, neither capture the full potential contribution of intellectual property in innovation management research and practice. The management of IP has become a central challenge in current strategies of Open Innovation and Business Model Innovation, but there is relatively little empirical work available. Theoretical arguments and empirical research suggest that from both an innovation policy and management perspective, the challenge is to use IP to encourage risk-taking and innovation, and that a broader repertoire of strategies is necessary to create and capture the economic and social benefits of innovation. This book identifies how intellectual property can be harnessed to create and capture value through exploiting new opportunities for innovation. It is organized around three related themes: public policies for IP; firm strategies for IP; and creating value from IP, and offers insights from the latest research on IP strategies and practices to create and capture the economic and social benefits of innovation.

The Millennium Development Goals, adopted at the UN Millennium Summit in 2000, are the world's targets for dramatically reducing extreme poverty in its many dimensions by 2015 income poverty, hunger, disease, exclusion, lack of infrastructure and shelter while promoting gender equality, education, health and environmental sustainability. These bold goals can be met in all parts of the world if nations follow through on their commitments to work together to meet them. Achieving the Millennium Development Goals offers the prospect of a more secure, just, and prosperous world for all. The UN Millennium Project was commissioned by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan to develop a practical plan of action to meet the Millennium Development Goals. As an independent advisory body directed by Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs, the UN Millennium Project submitted its recommendations to the UN Secretary General in January 2005. The core of the UN Millennium Project's work has been carried out by 10 thematic Task Forces comprising more than 250 experts from around the world, including scientists, development practitioners, parliamentarians, policymakers, and representatives from civil society, UN agencies, the World Bank, the IMF, and the private sector. This report argues that meeting the Millennium Development Goals will require a substantial reorientation of development policies to focus on key sources of economic growth, particularly the use of scientific and technological knowledge and related institutional adjustments. It outlines key areas for policy action, including focusing on platform or generic technologies; defining infrastructure services as a foundation for technology; improving higher education in science and placing universities at the center of local development; spurring entrepreneurial activities; improving the policy environment; and focusing on areas of under-funded research for development.

Knowledge Management focuses on identifying, sharing, storing, and exploiting internal knowledge, whereas Open Innovation is more concerned with sources of external knowledge. However, this simple dichotomy between open and closed approaches is unhelpful and not realistic. Instead, it is the interaction between internal and external knowledge that creates dynamic capabilities and the ability to innovate. In particular, we need to better understand the interactions between internal and external knowledge, and how these influence innovation outcomes under different conditions. This edited volume, Managing Knowledge, Absorptive Capacity, and Innovation, provides an opportunity to combine contemporary interests in Open Innovation with the classic notion of absorptive capacity, to better understand how organisations can manage the absorption and exploitation of inbound external sources of knowledge in order to innovate.

The use of bibliometrics for the analysis of technology management is on the rise in our increasingly technological societies. Many are using these tools to document or record the rise of various technologies, making it necessary to take stock of the value and application of scientometric methods and their measures. Innovation Discovery shows the current state of play within the field of management of technology, and discusses how we can use networks to explore, understand and generate theory around the innovation process. It looks at the different streams of analysis used to understand bibliometric data, and presents alternative and novel ways of applying these techniques. Written as a comprehensive review of approaches by leading researchers in the field, this book is suitable for graduate and post-graduate students and researches looking to expand their knowledge and embark on further investigations in technology management.

The book investigates the entrepreneurial marketing (EM) concept within the broader discipline of international entrepreneurship. The analysis of this concept, and designing a model of EM antecedents, elements, and outcomes that was tested on the basis of empirical studies covering companies from three European countries, explores and develops the field of international marketing and entrepreneurship. The book examines the role of entrepreneurial marketing in the internationalization processes of new ventures and adopts both qualitative and quantitative methods for analyzing the antecedents and characteristics of entrepreneurial marketing, as well as their relationships with internationalization activities and firms’ performances. It goes on to show how the application of entrepreneurial marketing may lead to an accelerated internationalization of companies originating from a transition market, as well as the Western-European markets. It addresses these topics with regards to entrepreneurial marketing and management and will be of interest to researchers, academics, managers, entrepreneurs, and students in the fields of international business, international marketing, and entrepreneurship.
