Article
This paper provides theoretical foundations for the existence of national social innovations systems (NSIS) and presents such a system with empirical data. Departing from the activities in France of Ashoka, a large and old service organization, which we label as knowledge-intensive social service (KISS), we build a large and robust social innovatio...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Social innovation was traditionally in reference to activities within the third sector and social entrepreneurship. However, this concept has been extended to apply to many other dimensions of socioeconomic activity, one of which is the public sector. The proposal of this paper is twofold: i) to provide an analytical frame...

Social innovation is an emerging theme within innovation theory, and so is the concept of public service innovation networks for social innovation (PSINSIs). The purpose of this article is to explore how social innovation in Danish public services is conceptualised and enacted through the lenses of public service innovation networks for social inno...
Article
Social innovation, in the context of public innovation, has gained increased attention in the literature, and is approached relative to the third sector, to social enterprises, or as practices initiated by the public sector. However, the interplay among these actors in enabling social innovation is still underexplored. Therefore, the article invest...
Article
This article is devoted to a new network form that is developing within the New Public Governance paradigm, namely “Public Service Innovation Networks” (PSINs). PSINs are multi-agent collaborative arrangements that develop within public service(s), spontaneously or at the instigation of local, national or European public policies. They mobilize a v...
Article
Full-text available
Social innovations are often seen as the product of social entrepreneurs. This paper instead asserts that social innovations are also routinized. This is the result of the appearance of a new type of actors: Knowledge Intensive Social Services (KISS). Like Knowledge Intensive Business Services (KIBS), KISS are consultancy organizations that provide...

Article
Literature on value co‐creation often postulates that a greater degree of co‐production increases the potential of value co‐creation. To test this hypothesis, we build a computational model of value proposition inspired by March’s model of organizational learning. The model allows us to represent various cases of co‐creation: (i) without coproducti...

This article is dedicated to a consideration of the tertiarization of innovation networks. While the concept of traditional innovation network has been the object of an extensive literature, new expressions of the innovation network appear in a service economy: in particular Public Private Innovation Networks in Services, Market Service Innovation...
Article
Full-text available
The paper presents a model of economic growth based on a population of heterogeneous and interacting agents. This model succeeds to generate - in a single framework - GDP growth and cycles as well as product life cycles. Contrary to the existing literature, we find that an increasing variety of consumer goods is not a necessary condition for sustai...
Article
Full-text available
This paper puts forward a framework for understanding the relationship between service industries and social innovation. These are two, previously disconnected research areas. The paper explores ways in which innovation in services is increasingly becoming one of social innovation (in terms of social goals, social means, social roles and multi-agen...

Innovation is a condition for the survival of businesses, companies, territories, and nations. The concept of “open innovation” is used to review a number of key aspects of the innovation issue. This metaphor is used to try to report on the major contemporary openings made by experts in “innovation studies,” and in so doing, a number of important c...

The purpose of this work is to examine the extent to which services and service innovation can contribute to sustainable development in its environmental dimension. The supposed immateriality of services seems to argue in favour of their natural sustainability. This is actually just a myth – one we examine the roots of and which we refute. This cal...
Article
Purpose – The research fields of service innovation and social innovation have, until now, been largely disconnected. At the most basic level, a great many social innovations are services, often public sector services with social entrepreneurs organizing and delivering service innovations. As well as this overlap in the focus of research, scholars...

Article
Full-text available
Public-private innovation networks in services (PPINS) are a new expression of traditional innovation networks (INs) in contemporary service economies. There are a number of ways in which this new expression differs from the other. It differs from it, first of all, by its emphasis on market services and on public and non-market services in the dyna...

An important and highly debated question in economic geography is how to explain the dynamics of industrial clusters, i.e. their emergence and evolution through time. Two main theories are generally explored, without being confronted: the cluster life cycle theory-which mainly adopts an aggregate point of view-and the network-based approach. Althou...

Full-text available
Paradoxically, despite the extent of their contribution to wealth and employment, services are regularly blamed (in both political discourses and certain theoretical works) to be directly or indirectly responsible for the economic crisis. This short note aims at refuting such a paradox, arguing that the service economy is an economy of knowledge, s...

Notre objectif est de montrer que l’immatérialité des services est un mythe et que les consommations énergétiques du secteur tertiaire sont significativement sous-estimées. Dans la première section, nous examinons le mythe de l’immatérialité des services dans des termes généraux, en nous appuyant sur la littérature économique. Dans la deuxième sect...

Ce papier a deux objectifs principaux. Il s’agit, tout d’abord, d’éclaircir, sous un angle essentiellement théorique, les liens existants entre les compétences dites dynamiques (celles qui traduisent la flexibilité de l’entreprise, sa capacité d’adaptation) et l’innovation. Il s’agit ensuite d’envisager, de façon plus concrète, la manière dont le m...

The paper presents a signalling exercise with a view to trace emerging dynamics in the development of the service economy in Europe. These dynamics have a direct influence and will trigger off service innovation. Firstly, the drivers of the service economy are presented, many of them fostering service innovation as a way to face new societal and bu...

Gabriel Tarde was a French sociologist and criminologist whose work is rediscovered from time to time. Economists of innovation have paid insufficient attention to an author who devoted a large part of his work to the laws of imitation and invention. The purpose of this paper is threefold. The first is to give a succinct account of these laws of im...

Service innovation was neglected for a long time, but by the first years of this century it was clear that some maturity had been reached. Innovation in the public sector has been even more neglected in the mainstream of innovation studies. This paper explores the scope for fruitful integration of work on this topic into innovation studies more gen...

The starting point for this article is the idea put forward by Gadrey (2008, 2010) that environmental problems and a policy of addressing them by introducing an environmental tax could trigger economic contraction and downscaling and a shrinking of the service sector in developed economies. The purpose of this article is to test these hypotheses us...
Article
Contrary to a widely held prejudice, service activities are polluting because they make use of physical tools and require travel, both of which give rise to externalities. In order to deal with these externalities, service firms can implement eco-innovations. The aim of this article is to evaluate the sensitivity of this eco-innovation to environme...

Chapter
Regional economic policy has traditionally been targeted at manufacturing industry. In most European countries, and at least until the 1980s, services, and in particular business services, were largely ignored in regional policies, which gave priority to models based on development of (and by) large manufacturing firms. It was not until the 1980s t...

Innovation in Public Services After a long period of disregard and underestimation, the issue of innovation in services is now being taken seriously in economic theory, as well as in public policy. This is not yet the case for innovation in public services. The objective of this paper is to propose a re-interpretation of the literature on innovatio...

This paper addresses the issue of energy consumption in service industries. Official energy statistics show that the amount of energy consumed in service industries is quite small, and this is explained in the theoretical literature by the presumed intangibility of services. Our hypothesis, however, is that the energy consumed by services has been...

This paper aims at better understanding the consequences of the privatization of extension services on the quality of the knowledge produced for and with the farmers. The originality of the study is that it does not focus on the front-office dimension of the services (the direct interactions between farmers and advisers), but rather on the back-off...

The aim of this article is to explain the overall shape of the waste stream of durable goods in the US economy. For this purpose we construct an agent-based model of economic growth and waste generation and compare this latter variable to the amount of waste of durables generated in the USA between 1960 and 2008. The model highlights a particularly...
