The thesis is a step towards understanding how the structure and contextual differences of programmes influence the advisory process interactions in regional innovation systems. Two comparative case studies were undertaken of small business advisory services in Australia and Norway. The findings aid understandings of regional innovation systems theory. More specifically the findings contribute to the emergent literature on public business advisory services and highlight the significant roles public advisories can play in supporting innovative capacities of small and medium enterprises.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
