Industrial innovation in Finland: First results of the Sfinno-project

Christopher Palmberg, Petri Niininen, Hannes Toivanen, Tanja Wahlberg

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    This report provides the first results of an ongoing research project called Finnish Innovations (Sfinno). The aim of the project is to provide a new viewpoint on structural and technological change in Finnish industry through analyses of innovations commercialised in the 1980s and 1990s. Our approach differs from firm-level studies, since we have taken the identification of individual innovations as our starting point and have collected additional data through a mail survey. We also have basic data on the firms commercialising the innovations.

    The report analyses the results of the survey descriptively, while more in-depth studies will follow in subsequent stages of the project. We present the results as changes over time according to the year of commercialisation of the innovations, across industries and firm size groups.
