Abstract

Italian Abstract: In seguito alla maggiore autonomia conferita alle Regioni dalla riforma costituzionale del 2001 e ai nuovi indirizzi europei provenienti dall’Agenda di Lisbona, l’attività legislativa regionale in tema di innovazione si è intensificata, portando anche a una revisione critica degli strumenti adottati che in generale sono stati improntati a una maggiore selettività. A livello regionale, il sistema degli interventi si caratterizza per una elevata frammentazione delle iniziative. Esse privilegiano il finanziamento della ricerca applicata e il contributo a fondo perduto. Per quanto riguarda le fonti di finanziamento, a partire dalla programmazione 2007-13 è cresciuta, anche per effetto della crisi economica, l’importanza dei fondi strutturali, che nel caso delle regioni meridionali rappresentano quasi il complesso delle risorse utilizzate. Questo lavoro presenta un indicatore sintetico, costituito da tre “sottoindicatori”, che approssimano, rispettivamente, l’input del processo innovativo, l’output innovativo e una misura quantitativa delle politiche regionali per l’innovazione.

English Abstract: Following the constitutional reform of 2001, which gave increased autonomy Italian regions, and the new European guidelines from the Lisbon Agenda, there has been an upturn in regional legislative activity concerning innovation, leading to a critical review of the instruments adopted, mainly towards greater selectivity. Regional intervention tends to be highly fragmented, focusing on the funding of applied research and using grants as the preferred policy tool. In terms of sources of funds, structural funds have gained importance since the 2007-13 programming cycle, partly due to the economic crisis, and in the southern regions account for nearly all the resources devoted to fostering innovation. This paper presents a summary indicator, consisting of three "sub-indicators" approximating, respectively, the input of the innovation process, innovation output, and a quantitative measure of regional policies for innovation.
