With the emergence of nanotechnology a new General Purpose Technology is shaping the evolution of many economies. Knowledge intensive industries such as nanotechnology evolve in innovation networks consisting of various actors. With their wide ranging applicability innovation networks of General Purpose Technologies differ greatly from other innovation networks. Based on the multiagent simulation model “Simulating Innovation Networks in Knowledge Intensive Industries” we propose a framework to model and simulate the emergence of General Purpose innovation networks.
Date of Conference: 9-12 Dec. 2012
