Without financial support from the Norwegian Research Council (projects 131468/510 and 139867/510) and the European Commission (the TEARI project—HPSE-CT-2002-60052) this book would not have been realized. We thank Trygve Lande and Helge Rynning from Norwegian Research Council and Nicholaus Kastrinos from the European Commission for their cooperation. The Centre for Technology, Innovation, and Culture (TIK), University of Oslo gave Jan Fagerberg a leave of absence to start working with this project, which he spent at ISEG, Technical University of Lisbon. He would also like to thank ISEG and the Gulbenkian Foundation for helping to make this possible. Similarly, David Mowery would like to thank the Division of Research of the Harvard Business School for a Bower Fellowship during 2003–4 that aided his work on this volume. Manuel Godinho of ISEG helped organize the first workshop in Lisbon in November 2002, and Bart Verspagen of ECIS (University of Eindhoven) similarly assisted in organizing the second workshop in Roermond in June 2003. In addition to the contributors several people participated in these workshops and contributed to the progress of the work, we would particularly like to mention Fulvio Castellacci, João Caraca, Maureen McKelvey, Sandro Mendonça, Richard Stankiewicz, and Mona Wibe. During the final phases of preparing the manuscript for publication, Mike Hobday, Chris Freeman, Ian Miles, and Susan Lees provided invaluable assistance in editing, proofreading, and preparing Keith Pavitt's chapter for publication. During the final phase Charles McCann provided valuable advice to the non-English/American authors. Ovar Andreas Johansson at TIK was a very efficient and helpful project assistant. At Oxford University Press David Musson and Matthew Derbyshire were inspiring and patient partners. (p. viii)
