I need your know-how in the field of RIS/RS since I am not as familiar with the specifics of the two approaches I:-) I was asked by a reviewer of my last research paper if I really mean "Regional System of Innovation" (RSI) (for describing a city as a regional area for institutional innovations) or rather a Regional Innovation system (RIS). I'm not quite sure, what does he mean&where is the difference. I used RSI as described by e.g. Cooke,Uranga, Etxebarria who used both terms, e.g. (1997)“Regional innovation systems: institutional and organisational dimensions” and (1998): Regional systems of innovation: an evolutionary perspective". So I always assumed both approaches deal with (almost) the same issues of knowledge generation, networks, institutions and policies? Is that wrong?
Thanks in advance and all best, Antoniya
Currently, to model the processes that are part of the management system of the organization, innovative technologies are used.
I am searching about different methods prevalent for innovation system studies, most of them are discriptive. I found some papers which use "system dynamics" method. They are interesting. But, you know, most of innovation systems theorists don't agree to use it. What do you think? What is your preference? Using Simulation, Yes or Not and Why?
Call for expert opinions.
Experts, researchers, lecteurs, practitiponers, managers, etc. on management standards and/or innovation management are free to discuss about the forthcoming international standard ISO 50501 on innovation management systems.
Should the ISO 50501 be a requirements or guidelines type? (certifiable or not?).
The discussion is open to debate, any input will be welcome!
Thank's for your contributions!
Dear colleagues, please help me clarify the following issue:
Regional innovation system (RIS) is
a) a subsystem of a region ‘responsible’ for generation, diffusion and exploitation of knowledge (along with political subsystem, social subsystem, etc.)
or b) a certain regional context, a certain state of regional institutions, which in total makes a region as a system to be regarded as innovative (i.e. innovation is being present in various subsystems of the region, such as social, ecological, etc.)?
Any other explanation apart from the two mentioned above are welcome. Please cite your references.
I cannot tell the difference between these two according to the papers I read. Maybe System is a bigger concept? Can anyone suggest literature on this topic or tell me the difference?
In my last paper “Measuring National Innovation Systems Efficiency – A Review of DEA Approach” http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2304735 I did the overview of 11 empirical studies on cross-country analysis of NIS efficiency with data envelopment analysis technique DEA technique.
The main conclusions are the following:
- In all reviewed studies we can see the bias toward Western European and North American countries in the content of country samples
- Persian Gulf, Caucasian, African (expect of South Africa and Egypt) countries were not used in the analysis in all reviewed studies;
- In most cases authors take quite little samples of countries (less than 30 countries);
- The set of output variables seriously matters for the list of efficient countries in reviewed countries;
- Japan and Ireland are the efficient countries in six of 11 reviewed studies;
- “Small” countries become the efficient countries primarily due to the set of studied countries in specific paper.
My questions to you:
- Can we apply the term “efficiency” to national innovation systems?
- What are the key factors of efficiency of national innovation system and how they can be measured?
- What are unmeasurable aspects of national innovation systems efficiency?
- Can we compare national innovation systems in different countries at all?
- What other methods expect of DEA can be applied for measuring the efficiency of national innovation systems?
Thanks in advance for your answers and comments!

hybrid strategy of Industry 3.0 and 4.0 with disruptive innovations, called Industry 3.5. few research has done.
i am reading for my master of manufacturing management, in my research i am interest to do I3.5.
Covid-19 is changing the world these days.
Being in contact with many corporate innovation managers, there are many concerns existing on the future of innovation - but also many chances coming up with the current situation
I would be happy to discuss the future of innovation in the academic community:
How does the future of innnovation look like, especially considering Covid-19 impact?
Thank you for your contribution! What will change from your perspective and what is already changing / has changed? All aspects are welcome.
As an input, it might be useful to have a look at our theses on how innovation will look like in 2030, developed using a systems analysis approach: http://s.fhg.de/innovation2030-en
