Title: The Dynamics of Innovation Networks along the Industry Life Cycle: The case of the Video Games Industry
Author: Balland, Pierre-Alexandre ; de Vaan, Mathijs
Abstract: Innovation networks have attracted considerable attention in innovation studies but empirical analyses explaining their formation are still underdeveloped. The paper uses advanced statistical models to estimate the influence of underlying mechanisms of innovation networks dynamics along the video game industry life cycle from 1987 to 2007. We show that the main drivers are stable but their weight change with the degree of maturity of the industry. Implications for innovation and research network policy are discussed.
