About this book

Innovation has moved through a range of revolutionary epochs, but there is no clear picture of how, or even if, innovation can be managed. Innovation in Agri-food Clusters explores the models, methods and metrics of innovation analysis in the context of a single centre: the Global Oilseeds Complex centred in Saskatoon, Canada.

Innovation in Agri-food Clusters is a single, coherent volume that outlines the theory and practices related to innovation, offering a critical assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the different approaches, backed up with empirical evidence.
