Trotz Krise nach wie vor starke Position der Schweizer Wirtschaft im internationalen Innovationswettbewerb



Das Wachstum der Schweizer Wirtschaft wird längerfristig durch die Innovationsleistung der Unternehmen stark beeinflusst. Um diese beurteilen zu können, führt die KOF der ETH Zürich seit 1990 regelmässig Erhebungen bei rund 6000 Firmen durch. Wir präsentieren hier Resultate zu folgenden Fragen: Wie entwickelte sich die Innovationsleistung der Wirtschaft zwischen 1990 und 2011, und durch welche Faktoren wurde sie behindert? Wie schneidet die Schweiz im Vergleich zum Ausland ab? Konnten die Unternehmen dank Neuerungen ihre Marktleistung steigern? Welche Folgen hat die Wirtschaftskrise auf die Innovationstätigkeit? Wie kann die Politik die Innovationsfähigkeit der Firmen stärken?
