This chapter applies the results from the previous chapter to analyze innovation systems. From Chapter 8 it adopts the analysis of learning by interaction and associated forms of co-ordination. The basic idea here is that innovation arises from interaction between firms. From Chapter 9 it adopts the cycle of discovery, and the elaboration in terms of scripts from Chapter 10. This extends existing life-cycle theories of innovation. From Chapter 11 it adopts the corresponding cycle of integration and disintegration. An attempt is made to identify ‘generic types’ of innovation system. Two types reflect differences between ‘Anglo-Saxon’ and other systems, in Japan and continental Europe, with the possible alternative of a ‘third way’.

Keywords:   innovation systems, cycle of discovery, scripts, life cycle, integration, disintegration
