    Abstract

    This paper aims to present reasons why intermediary services are not utilised as expected in new fields of industry like optoelectronics or biotechnology to get new innovations from academic knowledge into the market. By analysing local innovation networks, the roles of the actors and linkages between the actors, the spaces for intermediary organisations to operate are clarified. The experiences of the potential and real customers are presented to illustrate some specific reasons why intermediary services are not used. Linking the available intermediary services to these potentials to operate and also with the experiences of the customers will deepen the analysis.
