The Use Of Technological Systems To Explain The Development Of Complex Technological Innovations
Technology is considered as the hallmark of progress in developing and advanced economies. Research at the macro and micro economic levels shows the importance of R&D in world competition. Advanced countries have instituted supporting bodies to help private firms in their innovative activities as there is a common belief that R&D cannot be considered as an isolated activity. The cooperation among firms belonging to the same or different industrial fields on the one hand and on the other hand among firms and public laboratories enhances scientific, technical and financial support necessary for innovation.
