The Emergence Of Technopolis: Knowledge-intensive Technologies And Regional Development

by Robert W. Preer

Not yet rated | write a review
This study examines the rise of the "technopolis"--high technology-based regional development. It explores how and why these regions emerged and the policies that have been devised to promote them. The rapid, propulsive growth of the technopolis in the 1960s and 1970s caught many people by surprise. Silicon Valley arose in an agricultural area; Route 128 in a stagnant manufacturing region. Throughout the rest of the world, a new generation of regional development policies have appeared, the most common ones being science parks, small business incubators, and venture capital funds. This book surveys these policies from a comparative, critical perspective. It also develops a theoretical framework for understanding why regional high-technology development occurs and the role policy can play in the process. This work will be of interest to development planners and scholars in the fields of economic geography, development economics, and regional development.
