Implementation of innovative solutions among the ‘Leaders of Innovation’ is the second annual report resulting from studies of innovativeness among businesses in the Podkarpackie Province known as the ‘Leaders of Innovation,’ carried out within a systematic monitoring and evaluation of the Regional Strategy of Innovation for the Podkarpackie Province.

Businesses are the fundamental element in an innovation system, and a specific role in the system is played by the ‘Leaders of Innovation. This is why it is so important to track the implementation of innovative activities among those firms which are ‘Leaders of Innovation’ on the market and through this their impact on market position and regional growth.

Innovativeness must appear in every firm at a certain stage of its development, after a stage of market expansion there comes a time for the rationalization of production, attempts to cut costs, optimal use of the available resources and implementation of new soutions in light of changing market demands. Studies have shown that although the main motive in implementing innovation is profit, it is not the only motive. A significant number of those surveyed are also driven by their passion as a source for the need to implement innovation.

The key to competitiveness which does not go hand in hand with low remuneration, is labor productivity and innovation. Thanks to this a firm can compete with cheaper products originating in Asia. Even if there is strong competition, these innovators are prepared for it. It turns out that many companies directed towards innovation were able to survive the financial crisis of 2007-2009 in relatively good condition.

I invite you to read the entire report.

Sincerely,

dr Anna Lewandowska
