Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management

Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management
56 Jahrgänge | 2009 - 2019


The aim of this series is to highlight emerging research and practice at the dynamic intersection of innovation, technology, and knowledge management, where individuals, organizations, industries, regions, and nations are harnessing creativity and invention to achieve and sustain growth. Volumes in the series may include:

  • research monographs and edited volumes
  • handbooks and reference books
  • professional titles aimed toward business leaders and policymakers

Volumes in the series explore the impact of innovation at the "macro" (economies, markets), "meso" (industries, firms), and "micro" levels (teams, individuals), drawing from such related disciplines as finance, organizational psychology, R&D, science policy, information systems, and strategy, with the underlying theme that in order for innovation to be useful it must involve the sharing and application of knowledge.


Editor, Elias G. Carayannis, is Full Professor of Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship; co-Founder and co-Director of the Global and Entrepreneurial Finance Research Institute; and Director of Research on Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, European Union Research Center, at the School of Business, George Washington University.
