Reflexiones sobre el sistema y las políticas de innovación del País Vasco


  • Mikel Navarro

    () (Orkestra - Basque Institute of Competitiveness)


El primer capítulo de este documento compara el sistema de innovación vasco con el de otros países avanzados, basándose para ello en las estadísticas de I+D y en el indicador europeo de innovación (EIS). En segundo lugar, el sistema vasco se compara con el de otras regiones, basándose en las tipologías de regiones europeas y españolas elaboradas por el autor, así como en el Regional Innovation Scoreboard (RIS 2009). Tras ello, el documento analiza el peso y evolución de los diferentes tipos de actores que componen las infraestructuras científico-tecnológicas del País Vasco, en términos de número y tamaño de los agentes, su gasto y personal de I+D y financiación, a partir de una explotación específica solicitada a Eustat que agrupa los datos según las categorías manejadas por la red vasca de ciencia tecnología e innovación. Por último, el documento analiza los retos o problemas existentes en aquellos miembros de la cadena de valor del conocimiento (especialmente, CIC, centros tecnológicos, unidades empresariales de I+D y otros servicios avanzados a empresas intensivos en conocimiento) que generan este para ser transferido a las empresas. Todo ello, con el fin de formular una serie de recomendaciones tendentes a la mejora de las políticas de innovación en el sistema vasco.
