In recent years, he has conducted research on the benefits from government funding of basic research, the changing nature and role of the university, the impact of the UK Research Assessment Exercise, creative knowledge environments, and the evolution of the field of science policy and innovation studies. Esben Sloth Andersen is Professor of Evolutionary Economics at the Department of Business and Management at Aalborg University.

Innovation studies: Evolution & Future Challenges collects the current ideas of several key authors such as Jan Fagerberg, B-A Lundvall and Ben Martin in the field of Innovation studies. The book is organized in two main sections that summarise the state-of-art of a domain that is almost half-century-old. Firstly, this collective book systematizes the evolution and development of the study of innovation, facilitating its differentiation to other related and adjacent domains like Science and Technology Studies and Entrepreneurship studies. Secondly, it presents the main challenges for Innovation studies in years ahead encompassing new debates, concepts and analyses. Innovation studies is relevant for all those focusing in the understanding of the innovation phenomena. It is particularly relevant for those that are entering in the field and need a roadmap for exploration. * Hugo Pinto, Universidade do Algarve *
