While innovation has become a major issue in territorial innovation policy, the scientific debate in this field has focused very little on issues such as knowledge for policymaking, learning and adaptation. This chapter explores the emerging notion of ‘knowledge governance’ and the challenges imposed by assuming a territorial perspective, due to the intrinsic limits of local learning communities and the need to anchor trans-territorial knowledge. The derived territorial knowledge governance framework will be explored by discussing the eight case studies presented in the second part of this volume, leading to reflections on the need for identifying realistic and situated knowledge governance arrangements.
