Global knowledge flows are becoming a key driver of economic development. They encourage the inflow of new ideas and enable domestic innovation to be better exploited overseas. How can countries develop effective policies to reap the benefits that they bring?

This publication is based on a study led by the Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme of the OECD in collaboration with Scottish Enterprise, the principal economic development agency for Scotland.

Global Knowledge Flows and Economic Development recommends policies that governments and development agencies at national and regional levels can adopt to stimulate the participation of firms and research organisations in global knowledge flows.

The book highlights the following key areas where action is needed:
• Promoting cross-border alliances involving firms and universities.
• Stimulating knowledge transfers from foreign direct investment ventures.
• Attracting highly-skilled workers from overseas.
• Creating vibrant national and regional innovation systems. 

Learning model examples are also provided from leading programmes in Scotland and other countries in Europe, North America, and the Pacific Region. It is essential reading for policy makers, practitioners and scholars interested in this emerging area of policy.
