Chinese Science Parks

I worked with Peter Dickenson on an ESRC project funded project looking at knowledge transfer and networks between knowledge workers in the Zhonnguancun park in Beiging, China’s largest Science park. Three journal papers were published and a book chapter highlighting different aspects of knowledge worker networks, the establishment of communities practice and the importance of the region for knowledge flows.
