Islands of innovation as magnetic centres of star scientists? Empirical evidence on spatial concentration and mobility patterns, Regional Studies. Drawing on the results of a survey of 720 ‘star scientists’, this paper seeks to analyse the role of islands of innovation in the United States and Europe in providing educational and employment opportunities for such scientists and in attracting internationally mobile members of the scientific elite. It is shown that the American, and to a lesser extent European, islands of innovation are at the forefront when it comes to employing star scientists and exchanging them with other places. Furthermore, the paper provides evidence for the formation of a network among islands of innovation based on the international movements of top researchers.
