Abstract

This work aims to explore the main determinants that favour the capability of a territory to generate and disseminate innovation and the reasons for their possible changes over time (e.g. from low to high level of innovation intensity), considering the geographical concentration of innovative agents, the human capital heritage and labour mobility. Specifically, this contribution will be focused on the Italian provinces, given the current shortage of studies on their adaptive innovation-related skills. The provinces in Italy represent such a geographical detail that they can be considered quite differentiated from each other. Each province is usually characterised by their own productive specialisations and human capital endowments, which represent a strategic factor for economic development.
