Abstract:

Using the methods such as entropy weight TOPSIS, coupling coordination degree and responsiveness model, this article analyzes the evolutionary characteristics of the coupling relationship between the innovation capacity and industrial transformation of renewable resource-based cities in China from 2000 to 2016. The results show that: 1) Since 2000, the innovation capacity and industrial transformation of renewable resource-based cities in China have shown an increasing trend on the whole. However, the vulnerability of the industrial system is still strong, and the ability to innovate is also weak. 2) During the same period, the level of coordination between the innovation capacity and industrial transformation of renewable resource-based cities in China is low, but there is potential for improvement. From the geographical location, the state of coordination between the innovation capacity and industrial transformation of renewable resource-based cities in the eastern and central regions has continued to improve, while the west and northeast are out of balance status. From the resource type, the coupling and coordination between the innovation capacity and industrial transformation of the 4 types of cities, including nonmetals, metals, energy, and integrated cities, are increasing. On the contrary, the imbalance in forestry cities has been increasing. Judging from the size of the city, the level of coordination between innovation capacity and industrial transformation of large and medium-sized renewable resource-based cities in China has improved significantly, but the coordination of small cities is low and continues to weaken. 3) The innovation ability has positively promoted the industrial transformation of renewable resource-based cities in China. However, it has been weakening in recent years. In addition, the industrial transformation of different types of renewable resource-based cities in China responds to varying degrees of innovation capacity.

Key words: innovation ability, industrial transformation, coupling relationship, heterogeneity, renewable resource-based cities in China
