R&D, innovation and co-operation

  • Benjamin Niedergassel


Before delving deeper into the matter of R&D, innovation and co-operation, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the used terminology and the underlying concepts. Accordingly, this chapter will commence with definitions of the fundamental terms, followed by a closer examination of different types of R&D. The subsequent paragraph, dealing with technology sourcing, demonstrates the importance of external sources of knowledge and leads over to the field of co-operation. After deriving the necessary definitions, different aspects of co-operation and co-operation projects will be illuminated. The chapter concludes with remarks on collaborative R&D in the chemical and biological sciences.
