Analysis of a regional innovation system and policy implications within the technology transfer process
AbstractThe Internet Economy increases the integration among the subject involved in the production and diffusion of knowledge, in particular sources and interfaces of innovation: their action is amplified when Information and Communication Technology (ICT) favors the creation of an integrated network with their users. The aim of this research is to analyze the role and the integration of these subjects in the Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG), an innovative region in the Northeast of Italy. The method used direct survey on all the subjects (sources and interfaces) operating in the territory, and the results revealed the poor diffusion of ICT tools in support of their integration and low integration among the actors. Moreover the innovative process is mostly left to the initiative of the singular bodies and the competitive development of the local enterprises results probably below the effective potential of the region. An model specialisation-integration based is proposed in order to improves inter-organizational and territorial synergies among the subjects themselves.
