Chapter 11: Regional innovation system and policy in Malopolska, Poland: an institutionalised learning

Marta Gancarczyk, Marta Najda-Janoszka and Jacek Gancarczyk


This chapter presents the evolution of the innovation system and policies in Malopolska, Poland as a learning process. We focus on the dynamics of the innovation system, changes in the innovation policy regarding regional specialisation, and support for entrepreneurial discovery and innovation to open a new development path. The institutional (formal, regulation-based) mechanisms of learning are identified as the major drivers of the evolution of Malopolska innovation policies.
