Designing a Research Effort into the Innovativeness of Regional Satellite Navigation Application Clusters
European satellite navigation application clusters are the research object of this study (see also Chapter 1.3). Firstly, they have a high innovative potential, due to market and technology characteristics and their cross-industry orientation. Secondly, all of them operate in a comparable environment, reducing the complexity in interpreting the study results. Thirdly, all of them will face a comparable technology shock around 2013 (GPS Daily, 2009) with the introduction of GALILEO, which at the same time allows us to measure the existence and impact of innovation capabilities. Fourthly, the introduction of GALILEO builds on the strategic intent to generate employment and new markets.
