Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Most studies are undertaken using the differences in regional characteristics to either explain variations in the creation of innovation or interpret regional development forms based on innovative activities inside a region. However, many researchers suggest that businesses instead of regions are those that produce innovation, combining in their research the use of business data together with local characteristics The purpose of this article is to propose a new approach to innovation in less developed regional business ecosystems, focusing on the integration of business’ strategy, technology and management dynamics.
