Diversity of Innovation in Europe
This paper uses data from the second 'Community Innovation Survey', from the 'New Cronos' database, to analyse a range of determinants and outcomes of innovation in Europe, across 13 countries and a range of industries. Regression and cluster analysis are used to test for the significance of the various relationships. National Systems of Innovation are found to be of continued importance. Even when the performance of a firm is more likely to be linked to the performance of the sector in which it is operating, its strategies--such as over cooperation with other companies--are influenced more by the national system of innovation within which it operates, than any 'sectoral' system.
