“Innovation, Industrial Property and Technology Policy” Research Group
The growing significance of the knowledge economy considered as “that based on knowledge and information production, distribution and use” has entailed an increased interest in innovative activities and in advanced business services as transmissions of that knowledge.
In this respect, technology intensive services (activities intangible in nature) are a part of the innovation process and are activities that promote the growth of innovative activities which finally are to the advantage of all the industrial activities constituting the economic base.
