(UNESCO) Indigenous knowledge is the local knowledge that is unique to a culture or society. Other names for it include: ‘local knowledge’, ‘folk knowledge’, ‘people’s knowledge’, ‘traditional
wisdom’ or ‘traditional science’. This knowledge is passed from generation to generation, usually by word of mouth and cultural rituals, and has been the basis for agriculture, food preparation, health care, education, conservation and the wide range of other activities that sustain societies in many parts of the world.
Subject to national legislation, respect, preserve and maintain knowledge, innovations and practices of indigenous and local communities embodying traditional lifestyles relevant for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity and promote their wider application with the approval and involvement of the holders of such knowledge, innovations and practices and encourage the equitable sharing of the benefits arising from the utilization of such knowledge innovations and practices.
I am not very familiar with Actor-Network Theory yet, but as far as I understand it is applied in STS, whereas Innovation studies use maybe more case-studies or so. I am doing a research on innovation in bioenergy diffusion in two regional case studies and I will study actors and networks that characterize the system and also (among other things) how this helps innovation in bioenergy diffusion.
Thank you in advance
I am working on the notion of business model innovation in the context of business ecosystem and particularly the role of linked activities of various partners to re-design their business models to create value and capture part of it. Can anyone suggest the related research papers and mention any ongoing empirical research on this issue?
I would like to ask questions related to innovation system. Does innovation system has a relationship/influence with farmer' welfare?If it does, what aspects that should be explored to explain this relationships? And if it does not bring any impacts what possible cause? Do you have any suggestion what theory/literatures that I can read to answer this question? Thank you so much
I trust this text finds you well and safe.
I am looking for an expert in system dynamics to assess the impact of regulations on innovation.
if so, please contact me for further details
A network can be defined as ‘a complex, interconnected group or system’, and networking involves using that arrangement to accomplish particular tasks. Whilst there is little consensus in aims or means, there appears to be some agreement that a network
is more than an aggregation of bilateral relationships or dyads, and therefore the configuration, nature and content of a network impose additional constraints and present additional opportunities. A network can be thought of as consisting of a number of positions or nodes, occupied by individuals, firms, business units, universities, governments, customers or other actors, and links or interactions between these nodes.
I want to raise the following issue related to the innovation performance of the business, especially the problem with reporting research and innovation activities to national statistical offices and public incentives to increasing the level of data gathered in this field.
We call this phenomenon “Hidden innovation” – the good examples exist. Still, there is no official information about them in public space and official statistics, which is a problem in at least the following directions: 1) lack of awareness about “good practices” and missing opportunities for their dissemination; and 2) underestimated positions of the national economy within the framework of different international classifications and indices; 3) lack of evidence-based policies in the field of research and innovation and stemming from this inefficient public investment and unaddressed market and system failers.
It will be exciting and fruitful if you can share national practices in this area and what is most important – workable decisions for making innovative business more responsible in reporting data concerning their research and innovation activities.
This is a followup question to: Is innovation in decline because of inadequate incentives?
The Economist February 27, 20120 issue in the Free Exchange column alludes to an article, Are Ideas Getting Harder to Find? (2019) by Nicholas Bloom, Charles Jones, Michael Webb, and John Van Reenen,
But if society solves more problems, shouldn’t that increase the number of problems to be solved? For example, the advent of electronic computers created new fields related to algorithmic efficiency, data compression, software puzzles, entertainment, creation of digital social media and so on. That examples implies that the number of questions available for research should be increasing. Why would innovation be in decline? (Or maybe it isn't?)
Here is an analogy. I don’t know if it applies. When Rome became rich under the Empire, it was possible to get rich by politically obtaining more of the existing wealth, rather than adding to the already created infrastructure?
Is it possible that a similar effect could obtain in a mature academic system? Might there be more financial reward in protecting existing academic turf that seeking out new, riskier academic domains? Your thoughts?
Hey everybody :)
I am writing my masterthesis about the influence of climate of Innovation on the innovativeness of Ideas.
The study was conducted in a company and employees could post their ideas on an online-plattform. There were two "Idea-Boxes" to sort the ideas. 1. New Working Processes and 2. New Products and Services.
I have a scale to measure product innovativeness based on Schultz et al., 2013. "Measuring New Product Portfolio Innovativeness: How Differences in Scale Width and Evaluator Perspectives
Affect its Relationship with Performance"
But with this scale it is hard to measure the innovativeness of working procesess f.e. one idea is to establish an "Innovation Team" or another idea is the use a "Cloud-saving" System. So basically in this box is every idea, which can improve the processes of teams or the whole organization.
What I need is a scale to externally measure innovativeness of working processes. So experts have to rate the ideas.
I searched for this kind of scale, but did not find any.
Thanks in advance.
.Several studies have explored the interconnection between the urban land and the innovation system of tenure security. I am searching a paper adds to these studies by investigating how lands practical / theoretical elements of the tenure innovation approach can contribute to the local administrative and registration design and practice of strategic approaches processes
