    • EMIS Rational & objective Rational for EMIS:  Innovation is a must : KBE, globalisation, MPCs?  Worrying situation in MPC’s: Euro-Mediterranean region as an area of sustainable development and shared prosperity (Barcelona declation)  Why EU-MPCs cooperation on innovation?: 1. RDI are, by nature, widely internationalized activities 2. The existence of common problems and shared challenges 3. Big research and innovation programs require Critical mass & Resources, not available in MPCsObjective of EMIS: The mobilization of innovation stakeholders incommon framework and mutually beneficial partnership to develop a moreintelligent and competitive Euro-Med space Feb 11th, 2013 CAAST Net Plus Kick-off meeting 3

    • Building Indigenous Innovation Capabilities in MPC :relevant issues Policy discussions addressing technology transfer at international focus on providing developing countries with access to existing technology on the basis of consuming technological hardware . This attitude fails to recognize the vital importance of building innovation capabilities (absorptive capacity) to promote the diffusion of innovation within developing countries Environmentally sound technologies must fit with the conditions faced by developing countries. which is not the case with imported technologies combined with lack of absorptive capacity. Feb 11th, 2013 CAAST Net Plus Kick-off meeting 31
    • Building Indigenous Innovation Capabilities in MPC :relevant issues “Innovation” can be characterised as including points 1, 2 and 3 in the following typology:1. Innovations ‘new to the world’: Where a firm is the first to introduce innovation for all markets & industries, domestic and international.2. Innovations ‘new to the market’ : Where a firm is the first to introduce innovation in its particular market.3. Innovations ‘new to the firm’ : Where a firm introduces a product, process or method new to that firm, or significantly improved by it, even if it has already been implemented by other firms. Feb 11th, 2013 CAAST Net Plus Kick-off meeting 32
    • Building Indigenous Innovation Capabilities in MPC :relevant issues Often, it is type I innovation (radical: New to the world) that captures the focus of policy discussions . type I innovation is more likely to be associated with more radical innovations that are the results of deliberate R&D and it requires the existence of a strong knowledge base in developing countries context (such as MPCs), where rapid adoption and diffusion is a central concern, incremental and adaptive innovations that are often underpinned by type II (new to the market) and type III (new to the firm) are often of more relevance and importance. . Feb 11th, 2013 CAAST Net Plus Kick-off meeting 33
    • Building Indigenous Innovation Capabilities in MPC :relevant issues Incremental innovation has often played a critical role in technology “leapfrogging” in developing countries, where countries have moved towards, and then surpassed the international technological frontier. the most successful latecomers to the wind energy market (e.g. Spain and China) took the first steps in developing their industry through joint partnerships technology transfer via licensing agreements and associated royalty fees with manufacturers in Germany and Denmark (MacLaglin et al., 2009) Feb 11th, 2013 CAAST Net Plus Kick-off meeting 34
