  1. 1. Managing contexts for innovation and renewal : Strategies of incumbent firms in traditional manufacturing industries

    Author : Shanyun Sam Lu; Anders Melander; Jerker Moodysson; Harald Rohracher; Jönköping University; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; incumbent firms; traditional manufacturing industries TMIs ; strategy; contexts; innovation; renewal;

    Abstract : Innovation is important for established firms (i.e., incumbents) in traditional manufacturing industries (TMIs) to continuously survive and thrive. While internal factors often receive attention, different factors external to these firms enable and hinder the creation and realisation of novel products and processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Public Procurement of Innovation

    Author : Max Rolfstam; CIRCLE; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Innovation Policy; Technology procurement; Innovative public procurement; Public procurement; Innovation;

    Abstract : Policy-makers in the European Union (EU) have increasingly emphasised public procurement as an instrument that can be used to stimulate innovation. These developments reflect and respond to a growing concern among EU member states and regions about how to maintain competitive advantage in an economic environment increasingly subject to global competition The Lisbon goals set for the EU in 2000 require it to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010.

  3. 3. Innovation and transformation in the Swedish manufacturing sector, 1970-2007

    Author : Karolin Sjöö; Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; innovation; industrial transformation; manufacturing; structural change; third industrial revolution; literature-based innovation output; innovation indicator; economic history; Sweden;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis investigates changes in the volume and character of Swedish manufacturing sector innovation output between 1970 and 2007, a time span composed of both extended periods of relative prosperity and decline. More specifically, it examines whether changes in the number of innovations, the character of the innovating firms, and the distribution of innovations across industries are generally associated with any such period.

  4. 4. Approximation Techniques for Timing Analysis of Complex Real-Time Embedded Systems

    Author : Yue Lu; Christer Norström; Thomas Nolte; Ola Redell; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer engineering; Datorteknik; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : To date, many industrial embedded systems are very large, flexible, and highly configurable software systems, containing millions of lines of code and consisting of hundreds of tasks, many with real-time constraints, being triggered in complex, nested patterns. Furthermore, the temporal dependencies between tasks in such systems are difficult to determine analytically, and they vary the execution time and response time of tasks greatly. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pragmatic Approaches for Timing Analysis of Real-Time Embedded Systems

    Author : Yue Lu; Thomas Nolte; Christer Norström; Anders Wall; Enrico Bini; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Many industrial real-time embedded systems are very large, flexible and highly configurable software systems. Such systems are becoming ever more complex, and we are reaching the stage in which even if existing timing analysis was feasible from a cost and technical perspective, the analysis results are overly pessimistic, making them less useful to practitioners.
