I cannot tell the difference between these two according to the papers I read. Maybe System is a bigger concept? Can anyone suggest literature on this topic or tell me the difference?

Answer
Dear Xina,
In a nutshell, innovation networks are the actors in the system and their various connections identified by critical functions in the system such as fund, goods, information flows. Innovation systems cover not only the innovation networks but also actor independent environmental parameters, such as international markets, policies .
Figure 1 in of the first poster (with circles) theory of change in the second poster can give you an idea and. Also both posters provide examples of innovation networks and their broader environments, i.e. innovation systems,
You can also find examples of evidence on innovation networks and systems from twitter.

I am working on a paper on how government cultivates innovation network. Can anyone suggest literature on how government works on building up a successful innovation network, maybe utilizing cases in Silicon Valley or Shenzhen. If possible, can anyone suggest how to collect facts proving that government does make progress on cultivating innovation network. I am really looking forward to any suggestion.

Adding to what Laura is suggesting, if you fail to find information on the projects you can also work with 'outputs' of these pojects. Such as papers (indexed in Web of Knowledge or SCOPUS), Patents or similar.
Also, if you feel like it, you could compare the stages (imput vs. output) to see different dinamics working on the network.

I am looking for literature on RIS in solar energy/PV in  the Indian context.
Relevant answer
Answer
Krzysztof is right, I am afraid that asking for basic literature does not reflect a good researcher habit.
My advise is for you to utilize google scholar with some keyword (e.g "innovation systems energy" ... or replace energy with other industry) relating to the topic you are looking for. If you need help in downloading paid articles.. let me know, I should be able to help with that (just the major ones - because i don't have the a lot of time to download articles).
Good luck with your research.

Dear colleagues, please help me clarify the following issue:
Regional innovation system (RIS) is
a) a subsystem of a region ‘responsible’ for generation, diffusion and exploitation of knowledge (along with political subsystem, social subsystem, etc.)
or b) a certain regional context, a certain state of regional institutions, which in total makes a region as a system to be regarded as innovative (i.e. innovation is being present in various subsystems of the region, such as social, ecological, etc.)?
Any other explanation apart from the two mentioned above are welcome. Please cite your references.

Answer
It is important do not forget that RIS, and NIS too, is a theoretical concept. It is an observation instrument (like a microscope) and not an object itself. Such concept allows us to understand the relationships system established (between the mentioned actors) e.g. in the considered region. Such instrument can be used to observe the region at all, an industrial sector within that region (e.g. automobile, agrifood, biotech, etc.), etc. This does not mean that there are one, two or more RIS; the observer is using the instrument for looking at different places.
