Trans-spatial governance of peripheral innovations

  1. 1. Trans-spatiality Teodor Kalpakchiev Copyright: Teodor Kalpakchiev,
  2. 2. Institutionalization of post-growth epistemics Low Organizational Density and Institutional thinness • Hybrid polity (Lenschow et al, 2015) connectivity • Reflexivity (Feindt & Weiland, 2018) and feedback loops on externalities as engine • Autopoiesis (Teubner, 2011) and parallelism • Enabling environment, co-design, responsiveness (Cebotari, 2019) • layered, modular policy change • Excessive proximity can reduce renewal, produce closed mindset, sensitive balance to counteract possible lock-ins (Aswegen&Retief, 2020) • IPR and tech ownership: integrated vs. peripheral, adaptation to local conditions (Nordesvard, 2018) • New entrants incubating niches, simultaneous pressures versus incumbents (Matschoss & Heiskanen, 2018) Knowledge and Innovation Modalities • Transfer (Fernández-Esquinas et al., 2015): 1) Analytical, synthetic and symbolic tacit knowledge reproduction, 2) Codified vs. recombining/synthesis mode of transfer, 3) Absorptive capacity – exploration or/and exploitation • FDI linked inflow inefficiencies, import substitution, transparency, education (Osabutey, 2016) • Focus on value capture (also in terms of relationships), not only strategy, but also task innovation; tangible outcomes, long-term adjustment to company values (Shaikh, 2019) • Decouple individual embeddedness (manager, personal relations, adverse selection), move to extra-local specialized networks to compensate proximity (Galliano, 2019) Copyright: Teodor Kalpakchiev,
  3. 3. Integrative approach • Multi-level epistemic discourse creation • Micro • Distributed learning through elements, extracting tacit knowledge, strategic alliances and open cooperation, ICT tools • Meso • Research facilities and universities, public sector at local level, infrastructure, enabling environment, cross-sector intelli • Macro • Extralocal connectivity – hybrid, parallelism, cross-border, concentric, correspondence • Interregional, trans-local and multilateral dimensions • UNCTAD, EU-regionalism, trade negotiations, platforms • Circular Economy Missions (clusterization) • City Twinning • Horizontal • Discourse through governance and inclusion • Deliberate: e.g. regenerative economy Meaning: • Red – Feedback? • Blue – trans-local • Green – inter/intra-firm Copyright: Teodor Kalpakchiev, Liquid Governance
