This collection addresses the importance of the study of regions to the understanding of the knowledge economy. The papers illustrate the ways newer types of regional analysis, which use scientometrics, knowledge services measures, university networks and concepts such as knowledge life cycles, experimental knowledge creation and knowledge ethics, lead to a perception that regional economies resemble knowledge laboratories. The contributors feature case studies and assessments of policies for facilitating regional engagement with the knowledge economy and a critique of "knowledge economy" as ideology.
