Science, technology and business – market or interactive coordination

- Prof. Håkan Håkansson

Recent decades have witnessed a growing interest in the importance of science and technology for business development and how they affect the positions of individual companies and their economic performance. Over the years the discussion involved R&D people and general managers from industry, researchers and administrative managers from universities and policy people from governments. The crucial issue is about the present state of the technology-business interface and the general connections among scientific research, development of technologies and economic development in terms of the performance of business units. This is interesting for us as our research group has extensive experience in innovation research in an industrial setting.
