Abstract

The ambition of this paper is to provide a better theoretical understanding of innovation by framing it in a long historical, economical, and societal perspective. The research question of the paper is: What characterize the historical surges of innovation? Based on previous works and research this is examined from the 1880’s up until today. The contribution of the paper is a societal perspective on innovation, where the difference between industrial society and knowledge society leads into the surge of network-driven innovation. Network-driven innovation is unfolded on top of the known cost- driven, development-driven, and market-driven surges of innovation. Furthermore, the theoretical framing of innovation is supported by qualitative literature analyse of papers from the top 20 Technology & Innovation Management (TIM) journals.
