    Abstract

    In this paper the geographical evolution of the Finnish innovations and innovative firms is examined. Our goals are to provide new information
    (1) on the geographical distribution of innovations and innovative firms over time and
    (2) on changes in innovation processes and characteristics of innovations during the period 1945-98. With help of the existing databases on Finnish innovations commercialised during the period 1945-98, we are able to use qualitative data on innovations, cut down to the various categories related to innovations and their development processes.
