A multi-agent simulation embodying a theory of innovation networks has been built and used to suggest a number of policy-relevant conclusions. The simulation animates a model of innovation (the successful exploitation of new ideas) and this model is briefly described. Agents in the model representing firms, policy actors, research labs, etc. each have a(More)
This contribution deals with the assessment of the quality of a simulation by discussing and comparing "real-world" and scientific social simulations. We use the example of the Caffè Nero in Guildford as a 'real-world' simulation of a Venetian café. The construction of everyday simulations like Caffè Nero has some resemblance to the construction procedure(More)

The written contributions and comments received in relation to the previous and this version of the Research Roadmap have been summarised. That summary and the specific observations from the editors are provided in the Annexes to this version of the Roadmap available on the FInES Web Portal (www.fines-cluster.eu.)
A comparison of the current structures and dynamics of UK and German biotechnology based industries reveals a striking convergence of industrial organisations and innovation directions in both countries. This counteracts propositions from theoretical frameworks such as the varieties-of-capitalism hypothesis and the national innovation systems approach which(More)
Science is the result of complex interactions between institutions and individuals self-organizing their research. This workshop took this idea seriously, seeking to understand these interactions and their impact upon the development of science using simulation models and other analytic techniques. Its aims were to: • Bridge the micro-macro gap in(More)
According to the organizational learning literature, the greatest competitive advantage a firm has is its ability to learn. In this paper, a framework for modeling learning competence in firms is presented to improve the understanding of managing innovation. Firms with different knowledge stocks attempt to improve their economic performance by engaging in(More)
