Abstract and Keywords

Important advances regarding the geography of innovation focus on the competitiveness of cities, nations, and regions through the establishment of innovation clusters and national systems of innovation. In this chapter, this logic is linked with emerging scholarship on innovation for inclusive growth, which focuses on entrepreneurialism in resource-limited settings. By connecting the two streams, the chapter conceptualizes relationships between communities as ‘innovation highways’. It is argued that economic and public policy seeking to advance both prosperity and inclusiveness would benefit from deeper and more extensive consideration of collaboration between communities. The chapter argues that future research on the geography of innovation will take innovation highways between communities as central to prosperity, and consider the governance of these highways as a central mechanism of inclusiveness.

Keywords: geography of innovation, innovation clusters, national systems of innovation, inclusive growth, connectivity
