The Co-Evolution of Global Value Chains and Innovation Systems. Some evidence from developing countries.

On May 2019 I presented a paper on the co-evolution of GVCs and Innovation Systems at the ICC -Tsinghua University Conference held in Beijing. I also presented the same paper at SASE Conference at the New School in New York in June.

Here is my presentation.

Innovation Trajectories in Developing Countries: Co-evolution of Global Value Chains and Innovation Systems

In this article co-authored with Rasmus Lema and Padmashree Sampath, we investigate how combining global value chain and innovation system approaches can help to foster an understanding of the possible trajectories that learning and innovation may take in developing countries.

Do Global Value Chains Offer Developing Countries Learning and Innovation Opportunities?

With Valentina De Marchi and Elisa Giuliani I published an article in the European Journal of Development Research. The paper offers s a systematic review of the literature on developing country GVCs to investigate the learning channels used by local firms, both within (firm level, collective level) and outside of these value chains (i.e. external sources of learning), and the extent to which this activity promotes innovation.

Italian Industrial Districts Today: Between Decline and Openness to Global Value Chains

With Elisa Giuliani, I have published a  CERTeT WP on Italian industrial districts (IDs). In this paper we use the available empirical evidence on these recent transformations, and elaborate a novel typology of Italian ID organizational models (i.e. lowroad IDs, locally rooted GVC-led IDs, and outward oriented GVC-led IDs).
