Staging experience, valuing authenticity: Towards a market perspective on territorial development

Jeannerat, Hugues

In: European Urban and Regional Studies, 2013, vol. 20, no. 4, p. 370-384

Drawing on particular socio-economic theories, this paper discusses the implications for regional studies of the experience economy approach through the broader question of market valuation. Different forms of market construction are identified and compared with regard to distinct models of regional development. It is observed that most of established territorial innovation models give prominence...

Born to be sold? Start-ups as products and new territorial lifecycles of industrialization

Livi, Christian ; Jeannerat, Hugues

(Working Papers MAPS ; 3)

Territorial innovation models and policy practices traditionally tend to associate the emergence, resurgence and growth of start-ups with the development of local industries, either as industrial pioneers or innovative spin offs embedded in a regional production system. This approach is in line with a ‘lifecycle’ pattern of innovation and of industrialization marked by sequential waves of...

L'industrie photovoltaïque en Suisse occidentale : l’émergence d’un milieu valorisateur multi-local

Livi, Christian ; Jeannerat, Hugues ; Crevoisier, Olivier

(Working Papers MAPS ; 5)

Développée à partir des années 1980, différents modèles territoriaux d’innovation ont mis en perspective comment certains systèmes de production régionaux se développent à partir de dynamiques d’innovation et d’apprentissage propres à certains milieu locaux. Ces modèles reflètent une globalisation économique caractérisée par une mobilité accrue des biens et services mais...

The Photovoltaic Industry in Western Switzerland : The Emergence of a Multi-Local Valuation Milieu

Livi, Christian ; Jeannerat, Hugues ; Crevoisier, Olivier

(Working Papers MAPS ; 4)

Various territorial innovation models have been developed since the 1980s, offering a new perspective on how certain regional production systems have grown out of the innovation and training processes specific to certain local milieus. These models reflect a process of economic globalisation characterised by the increased mobility of goods and services but limited by those production factors...

Knowledge resources and markets: What territorial economic systems ?

Jeannerat, Hugues ; Kebir, Leila

(Working Papers MAPS ; 2)

In their attempt to explain in ever more in-depth manner learning processes at the roots of economic change, territorial innovation models (TIMs) have remained centred on production. Consumption is mainly regarded as the expression of an abstract demand relayed by exogenous market mechanisms. Building on a socio-institutional approach of market, the article conceptualises an ‘economic system’...

Territorial Knowledge Dynamics in luxury car industry. Beyond standard and production markets

Macneill Stewart ; Jeannerat, Hugues

(Working Papers MAPS ; 1)

At regional level a number of models, such as innovation systems and cluster have been developed which have been influential on this policy support. Policy initiatives based around these models are firmly rooted in a technological model of innovation and a standard market situation which takes little account of the socio-economic environment and the potential for downstream based innovation. Here...

Les dynamiques territoriales deconnaissance : relations multilocaleset ancrage regional

Crevoisier, Olivier ; Jeannerat, Hugues

In: Revue d’économie industrielle, 2009, vol. 4, no. 128, p. 77-99

Les Modèles Territoriaux d’Innovation (TIMs) tels que les milieux innovateurs, les districts industriels, les systèmes d’innovation régionaux, etc. se sont développés à partir du milieu des années 80 dans un contexte qui était avant tout celui de la crise des régions industrielles. À partir de cet héritage conceptuel, un questionnement fondé sur le concept de Dynamiques...

Territorial Knowledge Dynamics: From the Proximity Paradigm to Multi-location Milieus

Crevoisier, Olivier ; Jeannerat, Hugues

In: European Planning Studies, 2009, vol. 17, no. 8, p. 1223-1241

This paper addresses the issue of updating a research agenda about territorial innovation models (TIMs) such as innovative milieus, industrial districts, regional innovation systems, etc. The theoretical shift from innovation studies to the knowledge economy is taken into account by the suggested concept of territorial knowledge dynamics (TKDs). Observable major changes within society are also...

Non-technological innovation and multi-local territorial knowledge dynamics in the Swiss watch industry

Jeannerat, Hugues ; Crevoisier, Olivier

In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, 2011, vol. 3, no. 1, p. 26-44

Over the last few decades, territorial approaches have generally tried to explain how regions have specialised their production systems around specific path dependencies and technological innovation; how their specialisation enabled them to compete locally in the global market. Some socio-economic changes and recent theories have addressed new theoretical questions regarding new dynamics of...
