Abstract

This study examines the nature of innovation within small firms across two OECD countries with a particular focus on the differences between firms with low R&D intensity and those with high R&D intensity. Drawing on a sample of small to medium enterprises (SME) who were engaged in the commercialisation of at least one innovation, the study finds that while most OECD countries appear to be seeking to provide similar levels of support for innovation and commercialisation within SMEs such programs need to address the needs of both high and low to mid-tech firms.

Keywords: Australia, commercialisation, France, innovation management, R&D intensity, small firms
