Abstract

Questo studio cerca di identificare le caratteristiche chiave che spingono le imprese manifatturiere italiane ad impegnarsi in attività innovative e propone linee guida di intervento di politica economica in grado di incrementarne il potenziale innovativo. I dati utilizzati provengono dalla sezione Italiana della "Community Innovation Survey" 2010. L'analisi è condotta in maniera disaggregata per piccole, medie e grandi imprese, in modo da mettere in evidenza i fattori particolarmente rilevanti per le imprese di minori dimensioni, che costituiscono l'ossatura del settore manifatturiero italiano. Migliorare il potenziale innovativo delle piccole imprese potrebbe permettere di superare il "nanismo" della struttura industriale italiana, nonché di aumentare il peso della manifattura nel sistema economico.
