- Thesis title: Technological Innovation and Knowledge Diffusion
- Abstract: Knowledge accumulation and knowledge diffusion are important factors for economic growth. The most familiar and explored aspect of knowledge flow is the effect technological progress has on innovation; Therefore, evaluating the factors that influence technological innovation is highly important. In this research I will explore the factors that influence businesses to undertake technological innovation. One of the traditional indicators used to evaluate innovation output is patent data. However, as small businesses and certain sectors are less associated with patent creation, their innovation tends not to be captured by such indicators. This can imply that they are less innovative. In particular in Australia this is problematic since almost three quarters of businesses are classified as “small”, and it has growing services and mining sectors, both of which are not typically associated with patent creation. In order to capture technological innovation activity in Australian businesses I will propose an estimator for measuring technological innovation using the Innovation Australian Business Survey (IABS), 2003. This estimator will incorporate factors and methods other than Intellectual Property (IP) creation. The contribution of this study is to provide quantitative empirical evaluation of methods associated with technological innovation, for the Australian private sector.
