On The Determinants Of The Reach Of Innovation-Related Collaboration In Small Firms

This paper takes as its starting point an item of relatively recent academic orthodoxy: the insistence that 'Interactive learning and collective entrepreneurship are fundamental to the process of innovation' (Lundvall, 1992, p. 9). From this, academics have frequently taken "Interactive" to imply "Inter-organisational" and, whilst one might be concerned by this too casual conflation, there is a growing consensus that firms' embeddedness in collaborative networks matters for their innovative performance (Gilsing et al., 2008).
