We understand globalization as the existence of new macroeconomic solidarities; these have been attested since around the mid-1980s, with the observation of Kenichi Ohmae's tripolar world. Creative globalization has several faces: that of strategies of enlargement from local innovation; that of innovations carried out by organizations born "global"; and finally, the partnerships between organizations in the framework of this globalization.

The purpose of this book is to paint a picture of the transformations in innovation systems that globalization brings about. It explains the theories of globalization, as well as clarifying the relationship with innovation. Complete with examples from numerous sectors, the book constitutes an unprecedented summary on this theme.
