[Autom. eng. transl.] In recent years, the theme of innovation has played an increasingly important role for companies and institutions. Traditionally, the economy has approached the topic, mainly dealing with factors such as investments in research and development, technological knowledge and human capital, trying to measure its economic effects. As Fagerberg noted (2006), the innovation process is treated like a black box. What happens inside this box has been "left" to scholars of different disciplines. The pages of this volume are an example of what happens when the issue of innovation is dealt with from different points of view and is considered not only in relation to companies but also to other organizations and public policies.
