Property Report 2019: The geography of innovation: Local hotspots, global
"The geography of innovation can seem paradoxical.
The generation of scientific knowledge and innovation is both increasingly
global and intensely concentrated in a few local hotspots. New players,
particularly Asian countries, are responsible for more and more scientific
research and inventions, which were once the almost exclusive domain of a
handful of rich economies. At the same time, this greater international spread
has been accompanied - at country level - by increased concentration of
innovative activity within a few densely populated areas. These urban areas are
vibrant innovation ecosystems, such as Silicon Valley outside San Francisco in
the U.S or China’s ShenzhenHong Kong, a more recent
hotspot" (Wipo, 2019, p. 9). Ver documento
