Links between industry, universities and national laboratories are increasingly common, complex and spatially extensive. Recent studies have highlighted the growing tendency for firms to have some form of link, usually with a university but sometimes with a national laboratory. Most have dismissed the idea that innovation is a linear process and emphasize instead that it is an interactive and social process and that informal links between industry and the pSSB may be more important than formal interactions. Some research has focused on the geographical clustering of links between firms and universities while others have demonstrated the trend towards the internationalization of R&D activity. Yet another body of research has focused on the institutional context to identify how regulatory change has reconfigured relationships between universities, national laboratories and industry.
