The aim of the research is to investigate whether the structure of knowledge networks and the variety of the local industrial structure are important for regional innovation and if the interplay between these two forces has an additional effect on local innovativeness.

The research analyses co-patenting collaborations at firm level in the Italian provinces in three five-year intervals in the period 2001-2016.

Results show that either the structure of knowledge networks or agglomeration economies of inventors boost local inventive capacity. It also highlights how these forces have an increasing impact on innovation as the variety of the area increases.
