the implementation of a new or significantly improved product (good or service), or process, a new marketing method, or a new organizational method in business practices, workplace organization or external relations
the process of translating an idea or invention into a good or service that creates value or for which customers will pay.
the development of new values through solutions that meet new requirements, inarticulate needs, or old customer and market needs in value adding new ways.
National and regional innovation
Local innovation
Definition of invention
An invention is a unique or novel device, method, composition or process. It may be an improvement upon a machine or product, or a new process for creating an object or a result. An invention that achieves a completely unique function or result may be a radical breakthrough. Such works are novel and not obvious to others skilled in the same field.
New scientific or technical idea, and the means of its embodiment or accomplishment.
something, typically a process or device, that has been invented
Innovativity of a firm
Innovativity of a person
global and international actors
national actors
regional actors
local actors
research laboratories
Types of intermediaries:
public, business, civil
for-profit, non-profit
Innovation intermediary organizations
An innovative firm is one that has implemented an innovation during the period under review.
Oslo Manual, 47.p.
A company is innovative if more than 20% of its revenue comes from product innovations introduced in the previous 3 years.
marked by or given to innovations
using or showing new methods, ideas, etc
being or producing something like nothing done or experienced or created before
knowledge-based economy

Who is innovative?
Schumpeter - Technology push
Schmookler - Demand pull
Coupling (feedback) model
Integrated model
Innovation cycle model
Global innovation index
Global innovation barometer
strengthening power of developed regions
changing innovation systems and structures
improving role of information, communication
higher educational institutes joining global networks and processes
global information and cooperation networks
awareness of natural resources
How do you think globalization influences innovation?
globalization - changing structures
localization - establishing local cooperation, utilize specific local factors, participate in local networks or clusters
cities or regions are the cradles of creativity
strong and trust-based relationship
specific local factors
New definition of
innovation intermediaries
previous definitions based on national and sub national innovation systems and on technology transfer of institutions and marketing behavior and innovation strategy of companies
need to be defined through the “human side” of innovation and people participating in the innovation process
special market and communication niche, or because of a knowledge gap or information shortage
inventor and researcher
innovation process is a special market
Organized groups of people which are connected or impregnated into the innovation process and supplement the missing knowledge, information, skills, attributes or relations of researchers and entrepreneurs with their specific knowledge, information, skills, attributes or relations to help in the market based production and the marketing of the innovative product

What is innovation?
'Innovation can be defined as the transformation of an idea into a marketable
product or service, a new or improved manufacturing or distribution process, or
even a new method of providing a social service. This transformation involves
an adaptive network of institutions that encompass a variety of informal and
formal rules and procedures—a national innovation ecosystem—that shape how
individuals and corporate entities create knowledge and collaborate to bring new
products and services to market.'

(Nagaoka S., Kondo M., Flamm K., Wessner C., 2009.): 21st Century Innovation System for Japan and the United States, Comparative Innovation Policy, 13.p.)

National innovation system (NIS) is
group of institutions, companies and other organizations
together with resources, regulations and terms, which
affect the development, elaboration, delivery, spreading and using of
new knowledge and technology

Hungarian innovation policy 2007-2013
National innovation systems
What kind of organizations participate in a national innovation system?
Why should the government support innovation?
Why should the government
support innovation?
development of
national economies
development of the innovation potential of economic sector
inventions can not easily come out from universities
innovation is a difficult process - can not be standardized (can not produce much profit, willingness of investment is low- common goods?)
innovation can be defined as a new method of social and public services
innovation is closely connected with knowledge - promotion of education
creation of knowledge is complicated and affected by the knowledge of people (unstable)
creation of knowledge is like information - can be copied or stolen
knowledge is know-how and expertise (difficult to measure)
knowledge (tacit knowledge) and innovation affects the society (not only the economy)
innovation does not only needs invention but the whole process and the knowledge of actors (and infrastructure too)
cooperation and networking is essential for innovation
How can (should) the government support innovation?
elaboration of basic innovation acts and regulations (standardizing regulations)
systematic and coherent promotion of science
increasing the rate of science and technology subventions in the budget
institutional reforms in public universities and research institutes (HR)
strengthening the cooperation of companies, industry, academics and higher education
development of patent laws and acts and increase the protection of property rights
promoting R&D project in cooperation of public and business sectors
founding special intermediary organizations - promoting cooperation and for effective research results
promoting technology transfer
promoting incubation of new companies (spin-offs)
establishing Cooperation Centres
special subventions for joint research projects
promotion of innovation marketing, spreading innovation culture
How can/should the government
support innovation?
Innovation performance in the EU
EU Member States’ innovation performance
4 groups of countries
Innovation leaders (Denmark, Finland, Germany and Sweden) - well above that of the EU27 average
Innovation followers (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Ireland,
Luxembourg, Netherlands, Slovenia, UK) - lose to that of the EU27 average
Moderate innovators (Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain) - below that of the EU27 average
Modest innovators (Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania) - well below of the EU27 average
country groups: innovation performance per dimension
What do innovation leaders have in common
national research and innovation systems with a key role of business activity and public-private collaboration
perform very well in Business R&D expenditures
perform very well in other innovation indicators related to firm activities (Sweden in 3 out of 8 innovation dimensions - Human resources, Finance and support, Firm investments -, Germany and Denmark in 2)
a balanced national research and innovation system
