What can we test?

  • Results of Innovation activities
  • Expenditure on Innovation activities
  • R&D human resources
  • Links, cooperation and sources of information
  • Obstacles
slide6

1. Results

  • High product innovator rate but low rate of firms that applied for patents,
  • Developing countries: more process than product innovators.
slide7

2. Expenditure

  • Low innovation expenditure with high deviations
  • Concentrated on capital goods (then innovators)
slide8

3.Human resources in R&D

  • Even the firms with R&D expenditure and personnel present low rates of efforts.
  • R&D expenditure and human resources are not enough to understand innovative activities.
slide9

4. Innovative strategies

  • Capital goods and R&D are the most important activities in terms of expenditure,
  • But training and engineering and industrial design are also important in terms of impact of the capital good acquisition.
slide12

Summary and conclusions

  • Innovative features
  • Low, concentrated and heterogeneous innovation expenditure
  • High rate of innovators but low scope of innovations
  • Low cooperation rates and contradictory numbers
  • Macroeconomic obstacles (uncertainty and funding)
  • Implications
  • Importance of the subject approach and the integrated analysis (IA expenditure vs. R&D)
  • Simple indicators are not enough (efforts, results, scope and impact)
  • Deeper analysis of cooperation and links with the NIS
  • Endogenous vs. exogenous obstacles
