Abstract

Empirical evidence from economic literature suggests that innovative activities based on extensive interactions between industry, university and local government have shown high developing performances. In many countries, institutional arrangements have been designed to start regional technological districts. In this paper we aim to analyze a nationwide systems of public grants to joint R&D projects realized by organizations involved in seven Italian Technological Districts. In this framework the main purpose is to explore how network structures influence network efficiency in terms of knowledge exchange and innovation diffusion by means of Social Network Analysis tools, graph comparison methods and suitable models.
