This book takes the multidimensional nature of innovation as its point of departure, bringing together leading scholars from a variety of backgrounds to provide an authoritative and comprehensive overview of contemporary innovation challenges.

Each chapter adopts its own disciplinary perspective, but all share a common focus on the dynamics that are present in the governance of innovation. The concept of governance is central to describing the social dynamics of innovation and the `nuts and bolts' of innovation processes. The authors demonstrate how influencing the process of invention, the kind of invention, and simultaneously benefiting from it, lies intuitively behind the meaning of innovation governance. In particular, two perspectives on innovation are expounded; the first being agency perspective, especially the innovating firm in the economic process, and the second is the wider social context in which innovation occurs.

Extensive and comprehensive, this book illustrates that innovation is a complex and rich phenomenon with many dimensions and aspects. With a truly multidisciplinary perspective on the various dynamics affecting the governance of innovation, it will strongly appeal to a wide-ranging audience spanning scholars of innovation management, innovation politics, business administration, economics and political science.
