Governing the innovation
Warsaw Forum of Economic Sociology, 2012, vol. 3, nr 1 (5), s. 115-138, bibliogr. poz. 20
This article sums up the results of research oriented to analyze dynamics and outputs related to the development of two different technological parks in the North-East of Italy: the Area Science Park of Trieste and the Vega of Venezia. The research has tried to find an answer to the following question: what is the regulation model more efficient to implement good innovation policies? The article argues that, to achieve an efficient innovation governance, it is needed a strong regulation by the innovation broker - the central hub of the innovation network, able to support interactions among innovation-makers and innovation-takers. To test this hypothesis, the empirical research has used both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. In the Area Science Park, good innovation performance appears strictly connected to strong regulation of the technological transfer process. In the Vega, differently, low innovation performances are combined with weak innovation regulation. The paper concludes that institutional settings at the local level can be powered by a model of governance innovation able to combine autonomous interactions among main actors involved in technological innovation with a strong regulation of the process by the innovation broker.
