About these proceedings
The theme of the book exactly matches the title: the dynamics of knowledge, the corporate system and innovation. Knowledge is created and accumulated in the corporate system, which seeks to utilize it to introduce innovation to the market and society. Corporate organizations generate new knowledge through their in-house R&D activities, and introduce new products and services to the market by combining their own new knowledge and the knowledge generated by others, e.g. universities. Thus, the corporate system is the essential linchpin between knowledge and innovation, and the interactive dynamics between knowledge, the corporate system, and innovation are extremely important. To understand and guide innovative activities in the society, deeper insights into these dynamics are crucial. This book is a step forward in that direction.
