Innovation networks in Biotechnology-based industries

A comparative German/British model 2002 - 2004

This project was supported by the British Council and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)

The project is analysing the reasons for the differences in the organisation of the biotechnology industries in Germany and Britain. The conclusions will be used to develop a computer model grounded in existing industrial survey data that will reproduce qualitative aspects of the dynamics of the developments in the two countries. The work will help to inform government policy that aims to encourage technological innovation.
