In recent decades, the world has witnessed the emergence of a global knowledge economy in which functional regions increasingly play a role as independent and dynamic market places. These are integrated with other functional regions by means of flows of information, knowledge, and commodities. This contemporary and illuminating book provides a state-of-the-art overview of current research on innovation and entrepreneurship in functional regions. There are numerous questions regarding entrepreneurship and innovation in functional regions that have not yet been answered - until now. Some of the issues that the expert contributors in this field question are - How do firms compete and how do they develop their competitive strategies? How important are entrepreneurial actions and innovation? How important are firm size, firm maturity and corporate structure for innovation? Entrepreneurship and Innovations in Functional Regions will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars of entrepreneurship, business economics, innovation and regional science.

`The book is pleasant to read, well formatted, not overloaded with tables and figures, and, most importantly, it is well balanced with respect to contributions that are empirically as well as theoretically motivated. . . the selection of papers offers the reader a valuable and interesting avenue to the ongoing research agenda of entrepreneurship and innovations in a spatial context. The book serves as a solid platform for researchers not yet familiar with this topic.' -- Torben Klarl, Journal of Regional Science `The book begins with an excellent introductory chapter clearly explaining what a functional region is and what its roles are in the independent, yet interconnected, poles of the global economy. Here the authors provide a comprehensive overview illustrating the growing importance of functional regions and providing theoretical underpinnings. . . One of the great strengths of this edited book, however, is that it brings together different perspectives on, and evidence of, innovation and entrepreneurship across regions and industries. Each chapter is self-contained, and each is well written and comprehensive on the specific subject it explores. . . The book is an excellent collection of up-to-date empirical evidence offering inspiring insights into entrepreneurship and innovation in the global knowledge economy. . . Accordingly, I recommend Entrepreneurship and Innovations in Functional Regions, as an invaluable companion not only for economic geographers but also for urban economists, and policy-makers' -- Li Tang, Science and Public Policy
