Grounding in the Literature: Innovativeness of Regions and Firms
This research project aims to increase our understanding of the sources of cluster innovativeness. I define innovation as the result of a conversion of knowledge and/or ideas into new products and services (inventions), that are taken to a commercial use (building on Schumpeter, 1912; Freeman, 1982; Nonaka, 1991; van de Ven et al., 1999). Innovativeness indicates the ability of an individual or organization to innovate.
