Analysis and Measurement of Interactions in Innovation Systems: A Corporative and Sectoral approach.

By Jon Mikel Zabala Iturriagagoitia


Innovation Systems constitute an analysis framework, which allows comprehending the socio-economic structure of a territory. In this context, and due to the importance of interactions, the present research intends to contribute a methodology and a set of indicators which help to increase the knowledge about these interactions, and their impact on the innovative capacity of the territories. The methodology developed will be tested in a multisectoral industrial sector, the Mondragón Cooperative Corporation (MCC) located in the Basque Country. This way, not only the measures defined but also the differences among the Networks that constitute its different sectors will be observed.Innovation Systems, Interactions, Innovation Networks, Measures, Mondragón Cooperative Corporation.
