A statistical presentation of cooperation within the framework of cluster initiative for innovative activity
Dariusz Głuszczuk , Andrzej Raszkowski
AbstractThe data on cooperation within the framework of cluster initiative for innovative activity are collected in accordance with the Eurostat and OECD methodology (The Oslo Manual 2005) on the basis of forms developed by the national statistical offices of the European Union Member States and Norway. In these forms (reports on innovations in industry and service sector) the concepts of “cooperation” and “cooperation within the cluster initiative” are distinguished and cluster partners are identified – using the binary response scale (yes, no, “x” mark) (e.g. other enterprises within a related group of enterprises, suppliers, competitors, clients, consultants, universities) and its territorial range (domestic, foreign). The adopted solutions deserve criticism not only in terms of scope, but also the method of data collection (the first purpose of the article). Their major shortcomings take the form of deficiencies in the construction of formulated questions and answers. These observations were considered a sufficient premise for making the proposal to modify reports on innovations in industry and service sector (the second purpose of the article).
