It studies the simultaneous functioning and effects of knowledge ﬂow mechanisms on sustainable innovation in project-based ﬁrms in project- based industries; industries like the construction-, ﬁlm-, game-, consultancy-, and IT-industry. To this end, a retrospective case study, covering 20 years (1989e2008) of sustainable innovation in the Dutch house-building industry, is conducted. This study ﬁnds that bundles of knowledge ﬂow mechanisms stimulate both sustainable innovation creation by small networks of innovative ﬁrms that cooperate in demonstration projects, as well as stimulates a limited adoption of some of these created sustainable innovations by networks of larger incumbent ﬁrms outside these demonstration projects.
