How do different crises impact the pattern of innovation and why does it matter? The RelinC project joined a growing literature to better appreciate how the innovation activities of enterprises might adapt to improve resilience during crisis. Applied to the COVID19 pandemic in Norway, the RelinC project exploited a wide range of unique data sources:
- To assess the capability of the Norwegian economy to respond to a crisis in real time.
- To analyze how the innovation capacity of Norwegian firms adapts during crisis individually and collectively (in terms of ‘patterns of innovation’).
- Statistics Norway:
The synthesis builds on a set of intermediate activities that the project pursued to achieve its end:
- It reviewed the relevant (post-Schumpeterian economics) literature;
- It refined a standard taxonomy of firm-level innovation activity from this literature to better understand how economic crisis affect different types of innovative firms
- and it explored and further developed real-time empirical strategies that might be useful to monitor and analyze a pandemic crisis and its consequences
