NIFU-report 2011:15. This report presents and analyses the findings of a survey, MINE Norway. MINE is an acronym for “Managing Innovation in the New Economy”. As will be explained, MINE was a large international research project on innovation in private sector firms. The project was aimed at developing the conceptual framework of “games of innovation”, i.e. explaining how and why firms innovate. The MINE Norway survey was part of the Work Package 1 (WP1) on “Innovation Processes” in a larger project at NIFU with the acronym GIPOL, or more formally as “Understanding innovation in a globalizing economy: The Norwegian case”. This project was funded by the Research Council of Norway, through the research program “Vekstforsk”.
