How innovation is changing R&D
The paper starts with an introduction to the concept of management of technology and its evolution. Some reasons for its relevance are stated and some priorities are underlined. Then the emergence of new paradigms in R&D management is described. A research project - presently running in Italy and focused on how R&D organisation, management and contents evolve when confronted with innovations problems - is considered, with a brief illustration of the sample selected and results expected.
