Proliferation of Sub-national innovation networks, a relatively new concept, promises to be an alternative to centralized national innovation system. To be an independent entity, its growth must come from within. This paper attempts to develop the concept further in the Indian context. It provides a background of Indian government policies on SMEs, challenges faced by SMEs due to globalisation and prepares scenarios for SMEs to survive and prosper in knowledge economy by networking for innovations - innovations that can be appropriated and those that diffuse easily .
