    Abstract

    In this paper the geographical evolution of the Finnish innovations and innovative firms is examined. Our goals are to (1) provide new information 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. Considering the first objective, we analyse the distribution of innovations (divided into four areas of industry) by applying the central-periphery approach to study the changes in innovative activity over time. Here, we follow closely the conceptual setting, which has been developed by Davelaar (1991).
