by I.R. van de Poel, M.P.M. Franssen, W. Dolfsma
International Journal of Technology, Policy and Management (IJTPM), Vol. 2, No. 4, 2002

Abstract: This concluding contribution to the special issue on technological regimes discusses specific strengths and weaknesses of the regime concept and their implications for further conceptual and theoretical work as well as for empirical studies employing the regime concept. Four issues are addressed: the idea that technological regimes are rule-sets, the explanatory power of technological regimes, the empirical and conceptual boundaries of technological regimes and the dynamics of technological regime shifts or transformations.
