The Connection, Scale and Formation Mechanism of Innovation Network in Emerging Industries


Abstract:The innovation network of emerging industries is complex and special. Taking the hydrogen energy industry in Zhangjiagang City as a case, based on field research and interview data, the contact form, spatial scale and formation mechanism of the innovation network of emerging industries are analyzed, and the main conclusion is that the hydrogen energy industry innovation network is generally a spatial form of a combination of central and non-central networks. The generation of formal and informal linkages in innovation networks is influenced by path dependence, and can transform and promote each other. There are differences in the formation mechanisms of innovation networks at different scales, with the main mechanisms being geographical and social proximity on the local scale, cognitive, organizational, institutional and social proximity on the domestic scale, and cognitive, organizational and social proximity on the global scale. There are two ways of "top-down" and "bottom-up" led by the government and "bottom-up" in the path creation of China's domestic scale cross-regional innovation links. There are organizations and systems between local governments and universities and research institutes, which promote the establishment of innovation networks.

Abstract:The emerging industry innovation network has its complexity and particularity. Taking the hydrogen energy industry in Zhangjiagang as a case, based on the field research and interview data, this paper analyzes the connection form, spatial scale and formation mechanism of the emerging industries innovation network. The main conclusions are: The hydrogen energy industry innovation network spatial form is a combination of central and non-central network. Both formal and informal connection in innovation network are influenced by path dependence, and can transform and promote each other. There are differences in the formation mechanism of innovation network on different scales. on local scale, the main mechanism is geographical and social proximity; on domestic scale, it is cognitive, organizational, institutional and social proximity; while on global scale, it is cognitive, organizational and social proximity. There are two ways to create cross-regional innovation links in China: government-led "top-down" and market-led "bottom-up". There are organizational and institutional proximity between local governments and universities, research institutes, which promotes the establishment of innovation networks.
