Innovation Intermediaries and (Final) Frontiers of High-tech: Supporting the New Space Sector in Scotland

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract / Description of output

This book synthesizes the critical advances in holistic understanding of innovation intermediation. It aims to enable researchers, policy-makers, analysts and practitioners to understand and exploit the best practice in designing and deploying interventions in support of an emergent high-tech geographically-bound sectoral innovation system. The book presents a systematic review of innovation intermediaries’ literature and mixed-methods empirical evidence across a range of projects, building a new comprehensive model of activities and resources deployed.
The book highlights the emerging New Space industry in Scotland as a primary case study, but lessons learned can applied to scholarly analysis, policy and operational design of all innovation intermediaries’ interventions, which makes this book essential reading in management, innovation studies, political studies and sociology of technology.
