With co-editors, Charles will be responsible for editing two volumes with innovation-related content. The preliminary volume titles and editors are:

  1. “Handbook of Innovation and Public Procurement”, to be edited by Charles Edquist and Jon Mikel Zabala Iturriagagoitia, and
  1. “Elgar Encyclopedia of Innovation Policy”, to be edited by Charles Edquist and Mart Laatsit.

For both volumes, contracts have been signed between Edward Elgar Publishing and the editors. The focus of both books is on central issues in the fields of innovation policy and innovation studies. The editors will design the content of both volumes and contact colleagues that will be invited to write chapters or entries for the two books. Innovation policy researchers are hereby invited to contribute chapters to the two volumes. Just contact the respective editors and propose topics on which you want to write! We are also happy if you point to other innovation researchers that can write chapters for the books! (The deadlines of the two volumes are not until 2026.)

If you would like to contribute, please send an e-mail to with the subject line: “Chapter Proposal”. We look forward to your proposals!
