Abstract

This paper investigates the relationship between Knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) and the structure and performance of regional innovation systems in Europe. Results show that KIBS are a defining element of innovation-oriented regions, whereas their scarcity and slow growth distinctively characterize poor performing innovation systems. However, the analysis also identifies a set of core manufacturing regions in Europe, which are evolving along a different trajectory into knowledge-oriented service-manufacturing complexes
