Innovation and technology transfer

The innovation research focus is on the study of regional innovation systems and innovation processes between and within private and public enterprises. Employee-driven innovation has been a priority in 2014.

Research findings:
  • The management’s commitment to entrepreneurship has a great influence on the start-up of new businesses
  • The companies with the most demanding customers, suppliers and competitors, and those which work across nations, have a higher innovation capacity than others, and further that regional clusters have limited significance for innovation
  • Analyses indicate that the geographical scaling of collaboration in networks and type of partner is significant to a company’s ability to innovate its products or to obtain higher profits from their products
