In this paper, Maria Tsouri, Jens Hanson, Teis Hansen and Markus Steen analyse how knowledge evolves and (re)combines across technological fields and over time to contribute to the knowledge network of a new technological field (green shipping).
This paper by Blažek and Steen 1) identifies key conceptual differences between two main research streams within economic geography and regional studies: global production networks/value chains and regional innovation systems, 2) compares policy implications, and 3) discusses the scope for mutual inspiration both conceptually and in terms of policy recommendations.
Mission-oriented innovation policies have become a topic of much debate recently. In this research perspective, the authors reflect on reflect on what missions are, their positive and negative effects, and how they can be studied empirically.

In this review article, the authors perform a comparative bibliometric study of the concepts circular economy and sharing economy.
This paper explores the link between digital literacy and green regional diversification. Santoalha, Consoli, and Castellacci find that a workforce's skills in using and developing ICT technologies can be an important determinant for a region's ability to diversify into new green technologies. The findings have policy implications for regional transitions towards greener and smarter economies.
In this paper, Bach, Bergek, Bjørgum, Hansen, Kenzhegaliyeva and Steen conduct a technological innovation system analysis of battery-electric and hydrogen solutions for coastal shipping in Norway.
In this new report INTRANSIT researchers analyse how the industrial sectors respond to green and digital transformation pressures as well as opportunities.
Iris Wanzenbo, Joeri H. Wesseling, Koen Frenken, Marko P. Hekkert and Matthias Weber aim for a better conceptualization of Mission-oriented Innovation Policy (MIP).
