- Publisher's Summary
- In this publication policy-makers, practitioners and researchers come together to demonstrate, in a wide variety of settings, how new initiatives to create learning cities and regions can improve dialogue between the practice and research communities. In demonstrating the productive outcomes of knowledge transfer, the book should serve to encourage those in government and in practice-leading roles to develop further the arrangements to facilitate the productive sharing and application of knowledge drawn from reflections on experience and from research.
