Research and technology management in enterprises : Issues for Community policy (SAST project No. 8) : Case study on PortugalFunded under: FP2-SAST
This report presents and interprets data on the practice of technology management in Portugal gathered from interviews conducted in forty new technology based firms. The Portuguese economy and its knowledge infrastructure is analysed with respect to the labour market, skills and education, and technology transfer and policy. Information about the technology management strategies and practices of the firms reveals certain competence gaps including a shortage of skills and technological threats from more technologically advanced foreign firms entering the market.
