6Definition of research and development (Frascati Manual) R&D is defined as creative work undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase the stock of knowledge including knowledge of man, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications.

11Technological innovation (Oslo Manual) Technological innovations comprise new products and processes and significant technological changes of products, services and processes.An innovation has been implemented if it has been introduced on the market (product and service innovation) or used within a production process (process innovation).
12Technological innovation (Oslo Manual) Innovations involve a series of scientific, technological, organisational, financial and commercial activities.The product or process should be new (or rignificantly improved) to the firm (it does not necessarily have to be new to the relevant market)

55In the way of a summaryPortugal needs to jump from a “catching-up” model of economic growth and development, to a model of “forging-ahead” by exploring creativity and ingeniousness by developing and diffusing innovation.There may be agreement on some general and generic areas for investment (education, science and technology, infrastructures, “social capital” defined in a broad way). But the design and implementation of specific policies meets two challenges:The lack of understanding of the barriers and opportunitiesA lack of qualified people able to understand and interpret the developmental shortcomings of the country and of designing and implementing, at the firm level or in the public sector, the measures that could overcome these shortcomings.

62Questions to be raised: Purely quantitative vs. qualitative convergenceQuestions to be raised:Do results indicate latecomer growth?Do qualitative weaknesses remain?OrIs there evidence of qualitative changes as well?
63Evidence Supporting Qualitative Change ME’s Catching Up
64Note: Less confined to the Technologically advanced sectors Evidence Supporting Qualitative ChangeInnovation pervades the economyNote: Less confined to the Technologically advanced sectors
65Evidence Supporting Qualitative Change Shift of innovation expenditure toward intangibles: services sectorHowever, weak and ambiguous in the manufacturing firms - decrease in marketing & training, rise in R&D…
66(Source: R&D Survey, IPCTN, 2002) Evidence Supporting Qualitative Change… consistent with the rise of BERD since 1997, still quite low by EU standards…(Source: R&D Survey, IPCTN, 2002)
67Evidence Supporting Qualitative Change … and with the observed correlation between technological and other innovations
68Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses Industrial structure skewed to very small and small enterprises...
69Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses … which are much less prone to innovate…
70Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses … and to middle-low and low technology sectors…
71Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses … also less innovative
72Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses Limited market scopeThe restriction of most firms' targets to the national and local markets sets lower innovative challenges;It also accounts for the unusually high percentage of products "new to the market“, especially of services
73Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses Protection MethodsProtection of innovation, though mainly developed in house and new to the market, relies heavily on informal procedures (secrecy, complexity of design, time-to-market)This also helps to explain the persistence of a low use of formal IPR (patents, registration of design patterns, copyright): The only exception is trademarks.
74Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses The relatively low academic qualification of the labor force persists, especially in the manufacturing sectorThis is all the more important as there is a significant difference in qualification between innovative and non-innovative firms
75Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses As in CIS II, firms' perception of the obstacles hindering innovation contrasts with that of EU
76Evidence Supporting persistent structural weaknesses Firms overemphasize obstacles beyond their control (finance, costs, risk) and underemphasize those they can influence.Firms tend not to consider, and even less than in CIS II, organizational rigidities and lack of qualified personnel as barriers.But both qualification of personnel and organizational change are in fact associated to innovative firms, and Portugal has comparatively under-qualified workforce
77Innovation: What do we know? The innovative performance of Portuguese firms has improved over the second half of the 1990s, as far as one can learn from self-reported indicators.The enhancement in innovative performance has been accompanied by limited, but significant, structural changes – that is, the improvement in performance goes beyond catching-up dynamics.Important structural weaknesses remain – both associated with factors external to the firms and with firm behavior, with firms attributing more importance to the former when asked to indicate barriers to innovationTechnological innovation appears to be strongly correlated with Organizational Innovation and Change - there may be limited value-added and returns in looking at technological or organizational innovation per se.
78Innovation: What would we like to know? What would the characterization of innovation in Portugal would be like based, instead of self-reported indicators, on “independent” assessments? More specifically, what should we learn, compare, typify and seek to explain about innovative processes as a whole?What has the impact of policies been on the innovation performance of firms? When has it been positive, negative, redundant (that is, crowding-out what firms would do anyway as a response to changing market dynamics).What explains the correlation between technological and other types of innovation? What are the organizational adjustment and learning costs to innovation and how can they be minimized? Which are the organizational opportunities and how can they be optimized?
79Innovation: What would we like to know? What is generic, and what is specific, to the (still weak) innovative performance of the Portuguese firms? From what we would know to be generic, which lessons from other contexts could we apply in Portugal? From the specificity, what would constitute adequate responses?How important is innovation to enhance the welfare of Portugal? What alternatives to “becoming more innovative” would be available to meet the challenge of reaching the European average economic performance?
