Abstract

This paper is concerned with the dynamics of innovation systems (IS) in emerging economies. It investigates how one core element of an IS, namely its network of knowledge links changes over time and how that change may be influenced by change in the deepening technological capabilities of firms. It contributes to the IS literature by addressing this question for the first time by: (i) examining change over a relatively long period of time (1967 to 2001), (ii) using knowledge link as tool for analysis that firms used particularly in their technology projects to introduce new product/process technology and (iii) implementing quantitative analyses on data collected through detailed, face-to-face interviews in advanced materials firms. We found evidence that it is particularly the deepening technological capabilities of firms that drive the emergence and evolution of the knowledge network component of IS.
