In recent years scholars within the
In recent years scholars within the Globelics Network have begun discussions about how to bring together the innovation system (e.g. Lundvall et al., 2009) and global value chain (e.g. Gereffi, 2014) approaches for the analysis of economic development.
The discussion has evolved during several events organised in Globelics:
- Globelics/Eurolics Workshop on Interactive Learning in National Innovation Systems and Global Value Chains: How to Escape the Poverty Trap, Copenhagen, 22 May 2015;
- The Special Session Global Value Chains and National Innovation Systems, during the Globelics Annual Conference in Havana, 23 September, 2015;
- The Obel Symposium on Innovation Systems, Globalization and Development, Aalborg, 10-12, 2016
A special issue of The European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) (to be published 2017) will bring together these frameworks to build on the discussions towards the creation of a research agenda on innovation and development. The special issue invites contributions from scholars, who have participated in the above seminars and also call for submissions from other interested scholars.
Please download the Call for Paper for information on relevant research questions, important dates and how to submit your paper.
Aalborg University will host a workshop in Copenhagen inviting the authors of the accepted papers on 24 April 2017.

Frontier innovation researchers will inspire and qualify the work of the students. The Globelics Academy aims at improving students’ ability to undertake theoretically informed and policy-relevant empirical work on issues related with innovation in firms and societies, and its relationship with economic development. The academy is an opportunity for the students to join high quality research networks in their field of research.
You may qualify for participation if you a PhD student:
• at least in the beginning of your second year;

The ASIALICS Organising Committee invites
The ASIALICS Organising Committee invites full paper submissions for the 14th ASIALICS Conference to be held in Tehran, Iran 30-31 August, 2017.
The main theme of the conference is Technological learning, innovation and catching-up in the context of international collaborations.
Paper submission deadline: 8 June, 2017
Key note lecture will be given by Prof. Lundvall from Aalborg University, Denmark and Prof. Djeflat from Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille (Lille-1), France.
The conference will explore, among other things, the modes of technological learning and innovation within the context of international collaborations for successful catching-up. For West-Asia it is important to learn from the experiences of East-Asia’s successful countries while at the same time exploring its own way based on capabilities and conditions.
Original papers pertaining to the issues of technological learning and innovation, capability building, catching-up and even development in different levels (i.e. firms, industries or countries) are welcome.
30 (Wednesday) 1:00 am - 31 (Thursday) 1:00 am

The 15th International Globelics Conference
The 15th International Globelics Conference will be held in Athens, Greece and hosted by the Laboratory of Industrial and Energy Economics (LIEE) at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), the oldest and most prestigious Greek academic institution in the field of Technology and Engineering (established 1837).
As always scholars from all over the world and from many different disciplines will gather to discuss innovation and development, this year under the main conference theme:
Innovation and capacity building in the context of financialisation and uneven development of the global economy: New roles for the state, productive sector, and social actors
The conference invites papers addressing the role of different types of actors such as the State, local authorities, continental entities, knowledge institutions, productive political and social actors in shaping innovation and capacity building so as to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth.
In particular, the conference aims to explore whether we need new approaches to study inequality in the age of globalisation as there are widening disparities within countries, regions and social classes. The conference will also consider the need to tackle new challenges related to innovation and capacity building in addition to the systems of innovation approach.
In addition the conference also welcomes papers studying how systems of policies can be implemented at different levels and across different countries to innovate out of the crisis.
Deadline for submission of paper: April 30, 2017
