This quantity encompasses a number of papers awarded at a world symposium on learn and improvement, commercial switch and fiscal coverage geared up and hosted via the collage of Karlstad, Viinnland, Sweden. located approximately midway among Stockholm and Oslo, Karlstad stands at the River Klara, which reaches north into the mountains of Norway. based through King Charles IX of Sweden, whose statue stands within the urban centre beside the river, town celebrated its four-hundredth anniversary in 1984. for lots of a long time the wealth of Karlstad has been in response to conventional industries comparable to iron, trees and paper, and in the course of the province of Viinnland there are numerous commercial groups which grew up round mines, ironworks, sawmills and papermills. Even the cultural constitution of those groups is seriously marked by means of the economic atmosphere during which they constructed. although, for over a decade now an enormous structural reorientation has been occurring and the previous business buildings were disappearing. for numerous purposes the significance of enormous scale, production businesses has declined and due to excessive improvement paintings with new rules, new marketers and new know-how, we've seen the speedy upward push of small businesses. during this context, fresh study has proven that universities taking part in an more and more primary position in nearby improvement. hence the ongoing improvement of the collage of Karlstad is of important neighborhood and nationwide curiosity. even though really small in a global standpoint (approximately 4000 scholars) the collage is increasing rapidly.

E. an increasing recognition and clarification of technological possibilities and assessments of relevant market needs. 1 Three Major Categories of R&D R&D activity is a fundamental component of the innovation process. It aims at expanding and applying the stock of knowledge to commercial needs and encompasses work of different kinds. The distinction between categories of work is often hazy. 1): Basic research; applied research; and experimental development. These categories can be associated with particular task environments.
For example, the attractiveness of node 1 may decline over time in tenns of R&D capacity. In this case the equilibrium state of the market shifts gradually to the right of point C. A second critical point at D may be encountered, in which case node 1 loses the major share of K-workers just as abruptly as the earlier gain (falling from point D to point E). This hysteresis effect emphasizes the need for prolonged investment on R&D capacity expansion in order to attract and retain a high proportion ofK-workers.
Detailed knowledge of these questions is still rather fragmentary. The paper attempts to summarize some of the major,findings and to point to some defIciencies and gaps in knowledge. Particular emphasis is laid on spatial aspects of the innovation-diffusion process. Section 2 starts with a brief characterisation of the innovation process, considers Research and Development (R&D) - a fundamental component of the innovation process in more detail, describes industry- and size-specific variations in R&D, moreover, 48 InfWvation.
