[Autom. eng. transl.] Space and innovation ": a combination that today more than ever turns out to be particularly topical considering the ongoing globalization process. Although numerous studies are focused on the perspective of space characterized by geographical coordinates, space, considered as an economic resource, can be associated with not only geographical but also cognitive, social and organizational proximity. In this context, the main purpose of this book was to investigate the development of technological scientific innovation in the perspective of spatial relations. In recent years the concept of relational proximity based on the interconnection of relationships between heterogeneous companies and stakeholders, through which innovation is generated and spread, is emerging. In this perspective, the company uses external sources of innovation to access and combine different knowledge, outlining the innovation network. The empirical analysis dealt with in the second part of the monograph is the result of a research conducted by the author in the context of the Italian Technological Science Parks. Cases suggest that companies, research centers, universities and institutions tend to work together to develop an open network to develop innovation.
