Rothwell, Successful industrial innovation. R & D Management 22 (1992) 221–239. 3 Thimonnier, indeed, narrowly escaped with his life when tailors smashed his machines in fear of losing their livelihoods. 4 This is, at root, an indictment of the system of scientific research funded on the basis of the so-called competitive grant proposals. Scientists learn as undergraduates to select problems of importance to work on (I well remember this advice from Sir Peter Medawar given in his lecture “Advice to a Young Scientist”), and left to themselves that is what they will do during their research careers.

The research must be described in great detail, and if the proposal is accepted and the research is funded, the scientist is then required to follow his submitted plans to the letter. 2 Detail of the transformation of technology to products, applicable to all the models. New technologies could of course be patented by large established companies as well, but nowadays it is more typical for such companies to buy spin-offs in order to acquire a new technology. 6 Innovation, in the sense of the implementation of discovery, or how research results are turned into products, is a theme at the heart of this book (cf.

A. Schumpeter, have noticed that established technologies sometimes die out, creating space for new ones.
