Abstract

Innovation has long been considered an important factor for creating and maintaining the competitiveness of nations and firms. In this paper we examine whether innovation performed by small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) from Lublin Voivodeship enhances their exporting potential. This study is based on an analysis of research done among 1,680 companies from Lublin Voivodeship. Regarding exporting activities, the Lublin region occupies the 14th position out of the total of 16 provinces. At the same time, as regards the level of innovativeness, Lublin Voivodeship was classified as a low-innovator in the latest European Regional Innovation Scoreboard (RSI). Such a low position of the province in both rankings illustrates the influence of the innovation level on the level of exports. In the opinion of the respondents, the low innovation level of the products offered by their companies does affect the development of the company’s exports and determines undertaking exporting activities. The research suggests that low innovation level occurring in a company is important for the development of the company’s exports and has become the reason for its decision not to become involved in exporting activities.
