Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportForskning


Historical growth analysis, trade data and labour market statistics all indicate that knowledge is becoming the strategic resource and that learning the most important process in the economy. In order to understand the implications of a dynamic world, where change is the rule, rather than the exception, new tools of analysis have to be developed and further refined, both in terms of the theoretical framework and empirical measurement, but also in terms of the interface between two. One possible tool in this context, is the literature on National Innovation Systems, which will provide the theoretical background for this study.
The study largely follow the work plan for the pilot case studies, outlined by the OECD directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (OECD, 1995). Similar studies are pursued in many other OECD countries. The objective is to carry out a preliminary and empirically based analysis of the Danish Innovation System,
especially with regard to the diffusion and utilisation of the knowledge production taking place at universities, research organisations and business firms.
