China as an Innovation Hub: Alberto and Simone write on Mondo Cinese

As China becomes number one in the PCT statistics, Simone and Alberto look at the Chinese market as a source of innovation.

On March 30th 2012, at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, scholars and managers met during a workshop organized by Simone Corsi and Alberto Di Minin on the topic: Chinese market as a source of innovation. During a day of intense discussion and interaction, various experts presented new research and interesting cases to demonstrate the relevance of China as a region where new ideas and opportunities for innovation can be generated and eventually transferred back to other economies. In a contribution to the number 150 of Mondo Cinese we try to summarize the main points presented by speakers in the course of the day.
