Abstract

Die vorliegende Studie widmet sich nicht-forschenden, mittelständischen Innovatoren. Diese meist kleinen Unternehmen sind vorrangig im Dienstleistungsbereich zu finden. Ziel war es zu ermitteln, welche alternativen Strategien nicht-forschende Innovatoren umsetzen, um Innovationen zu generieren und inwiefern diese FuE ersetzen können. Es zeigt sich, dass der eigenen FuE-Tätigkeit für die Erstellung von Produktinnovationen eine entscheidende Rolle zukommt. Dabei nimmt die Relevanz eigener FuE mit dem Neuigkeitsgrad der Produktinnovation zu. Prozess- und nicht-technologische Innovationen sind im Gegenzug auch ohne eigene FuE realisierbar.
