Liyanage (Macquarie Institute for Innovation, U. of Macquarie, Australia), Wink (international economics, U. of Applied Sciences, HTWK, Germany) and Nordberg (resources coordinator, ATLAS project, CERN, Switzerland) explore the connection between scientific progress and patterns of innovations by investigating three central programs: the particle physics experiments in the CERN-ATLAS collaboration, aviation research at the Airbus consortium, and biotechnology advances in stem cell research groups. Describing "path-breaking innovation" as a constellation of events, situations and manifestations of change, learning, leadership and motivation, the authors organize their study around the themes of change processes, work and production philosophies, strategies and collaborations, change environment, spatial dimension, leadership and funding. They conclude that path-breaking innovations are based on good science embedded in a social-system of openness, tolerance, respect and patience. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
