This book gets to the root of how and why multinational firms differ in the cross-border creation, transfer and diffusion of technology, and provides fresh evidence on the effects that these differences have on productivity and innovation in the economic systems in which they are active.

This chapter aims to identify the building blocks of a new way of conceptualising and measuring public service innovation. It is suggested that addressing public service innovation implies that a large number of heterogeneous players and of interactions among them is to be considered, hence making it particularly hard to identify a single (or a few) ‘representative subjects’ as units of analysis. Abandoning a pure subject-based approach poses important challenges to measurement and statistics. A possible way to tackle such challenges might be that of singling out a manageable variety of public services and of innovation types, including online services. This implies reversing the usual approach: from the identification of subjects as the key unit of observation leading to classify innovative activities correspondingly; to the identification of innovative objects leading to the identification of subjects involved in the generation and diffusion of such innovative objects.
