Status of Knowledge - Innovation in rural places


Anja Sire, Ingjerd Skogseid, Jon Gunnar Nesse: INNOVATION IN RURAL PLACES – CONDITIONS AND BARRIERS. Status of knowledge

In this report, we present our understanding and interpretation of a selection of state-of-art literature on regional innovation and development. The project was financed by the NRC, the County Municipality, and the research institutions themselves, which in this case are Vestlandsforsking and Sogn og Fjordane University College. Our ambition is not to present a complete coverage of this field of knowledge as the our research question directs our search for literature. It is also a snapshot of the initial phase of the project that is why this report is in English while the other reports from the project is in Norwegian.
