Abstract

Innovation networks constitute a valid structure in which to foster members’ abilities to interact and cooperate, reducing environmental uncertainty and enhancingways to deal with the challenges that derive from economic change. This paper analyses the correlation between the structure of inter-organisational innovation networks and innovation performance. We consider the correlations between weighted quantities and the underlying structure of the network to describe hierarchies and organisational principles, arguing for their influence on innovation. To attest the effectiveness of the approach we propose, as a case study, the Enterprise Europe Network, describing its architecture along with its quantitative information.
