Description


The Smart Innovation set presents topics linked to the technological, entrepreneurial, territorial and economic dynamics of innovation. It favors innovating approaches of actors who, through their behaviors, strategies and policies of smart innovation, modify economic models with a view to sustainable growth.

Apart from poverty and conflict, the consequences of technological advances, of the globalization of socio-technical transitions, and of the uniformity of the world economy, are questions to which the economic analysis of development must find answers. With scientific and technical knowledge being inexhaustible resources, it is necessary to transform this knowledge into useful goods and services.

This book describes shortcomings in world governance which is far from the view of a harmonized, diversified and accelerated development. It shows the necessity of reinforcing the innovation capacities of developing countries in order to improve their competitiveness in the face of the demands of globalization.

Contents


1. Theories and Policies of Economic Development.
2. Innovative Capacities and Systems of the South in Globalization.
