- Inter-regional collaboration plays an important role in booting the flow of knowledge and technology between cross-border actors. The existing research focus on collaboration pattern itself and its spatial characteristics, but ignored its technological characteristics. This paper proposes a three-dimensional analytical framework, and applies the framework to the Chinese case by examining collaborative invention patent applications from 1985 to 2015. Results show that, first, the evolutions of China’s inter-regional R&D collaboration patterns differ greatly; second, geographic constraint on China’s inter-regional knowledge flows mainly exists in early period, especially for two patterns (inter-regional collaboration between enterprises, and between enterprises and academic institutions); third, China’s inter-regional R&D collaboration mainly took place in related technological fields in early period, but in unrelated technological fields for two patterns (inter-regional collaboration between academic institutions, and between enterprises and academic institutions) in the last two periods. Chemistry and Metallurgy, Physics, Electricity are main collaborative fields.
