The role of collaboration in the creation and diffusion of innovations has
received a considerable amount of interest in the past decade from both
innovation economists and European policy makers. The European Commission
(EC), for example, requires collaboration for research funded
under the Framework Programmes (FPs) and encourages national policies
to increase the rate of collaboration between firms and between firms
and public research organizations (PROs) such as universities and publicly-
funded research institutes (Hagedoorn et ai. 2000).
Part of the increased attention given to collaboration is due to a shift in
economic theories of innovation from a linear to an interactive model and
to a recognition of the importance of tacit knowledge to innovation and
technology transfer. The first shift places greater importance on information
and knowledge flows. This is partly because there are more linkages
within an interactive or chain-link innovation system and partly because
modern innovation theories stress the diffusion of knowledge among
many different actors
