KEINS Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship: Innovation, Networks and Systems


Within the overall area of the Knowledge-Based Economy (KBE) a consortium of seven partners under the leadership of the Luigi Bocconi University focused on three types of KBE in Europe: start-up entrepreneurship, corporate entrepreneurship and academic entrepreneurship. The project pursued five objectives: discussing and refining current concepts of KBE, exploring its relationship with innovation, defining the role of networks of alliances, information, finance and social ties, assessing KBE in different sectoral and national systems of innovation and producing policy recommendations. CASE expert participation in the project included Michal Gorzynski, Malgorzata Jakubiak and Rick Woodward. At two subsequent meetings held in 2005: February 3-4 (Milan) and October 13-14 (Lisbon) drafts of theoretical papers and early case studies were presented and discussed.
