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.
