While science and technology research, sources of funding, performances, incentives and motivations for technology innovation activities are reasonably well understood by academics and policy makers, the complex process by which scientific results are exploited and transformed in new technologies through an innovation process is poorly documented and little studied. This book is dedicated to the complex activity of technology innovation with the aim to describe the process of generation of innovative ideas and their transformation into new technologies. It is based on the idea that technology evolves continuously with time, is changed by innovations, and is characterized by a dynamics constituted by technological processes occurring in organizational structures, but also during the use of technologies.

  • Describes innovation within organizational structures
  • Offers information on interface of science and economic factors with technology
  • Suggests new statistical studies for innovation and new approaches for innovation policies

This book is aimed at managers developing strategies for technology innovation, researchers interested in exploiting scientific results for innovative ideas and new technologies, and students studying economics of innovation. The book is of interest to private or public financiers of innovation and policy makers involved in economic growth strategy.
