Challenges for Increasing the Innovativeness of Romanian Firms

Abstract: Overcoming the “modest innovator” status, maintained by Romania for several years, requires an in-depth analysis of the determinants of the firm’s innovativeness, in order to identify and apply effective mechanisms for stimulating innovation processes at the company level, new tools and policies to encourage the industrial demand for the firm’s R&D results and to increase their capacity to absorb new technology and innovation.

This paper aims to depict the recent trends in the research and innovation activity of Romanian firms – in an European context – with respect to some of the widely acknowledged determinants of innovativeness at the firm level, such as firm size, R&D intensity and innovation type, openness to cooperation and integration within knowledge flows and innovation networks. Our research concludes with some recommendations regarding innovation policy approaches that may boost innovativeness.
