Description

In a globalizing, knowledge-based economy, innovation and creative capacity lead to economic prosperity. Starting in 2006, the Innovation Systems Research Network began a six year-long study on how city-regions in Canada were surviving and thriving in a globalized world. That study resulted in the “Innovation, Creativity, and Governance in Canadian City-Regions” series, which examines the impact of innovation, talent, and institutions on sixteen city-regions across Canada. This volume explores how the social dynamics that influence innovation and knowledge flows in Canadian city-regions contribute to transformation and long-term growth.

With case studies examining cities of all sizes, from Toronto to Moncton, Innovating in Urban Economies analyzes the impact of size, location, and the regional economy on innovation and knowledge in Canada’s cities.

Editorial Reviews

‘David Wolfe delivers a masterful collection of essays that investigate various components of urban innovation and economics… This volume could very well offer findings to aid academics and policy makers to better understand economic structures and outcomes.’

— Journal of Urban Affairs vol 39:02:2017

‘The volume’s empirical richness alone makes it worth recommending and the book will prove a valuable resource for those looking to study, understand, and theorize the future of innovation and resiliency in urbanized knowledge economies.’

— Urban Studies vol 52: August 2015

‘Innovating is a great group of case studies written by some great Canadian experts. Anyone interested in innovation should keep it handy.’

— Science and Public Policy November 2015
