Executive Summary

This paper is to analyze the dynamics of networks in which new knowledge emerges and through which it is exchanged. The conjecture is that the structure of a network cannot be divorced from the dynamics of the knowledge underpinning its activities. In so doing the authors look beyond studies based on the assumption of exogenous networks and delve into the mechanisms that stimulate their creation and transformation. The goal is to analyze how the patterns of interaction emerge and transform over time.
