TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION AS A DETERMINING FACTOR ON NATIONAL COMPETITIVENESS

This article carries out an analysis on the existence and characteristics of technological innovation clusters on 57 economies worldwide, and explores if differences in competitiveness among these economies can be explained by their belonging to a group or cluster.For that purpose, we have conducted an empirical study based on  technological innovation indicators included in  the Global Competitiveness Report (GCR) 2009-2010 (WEF, 2009) and in the Competitiveness Index published by the International Institute for Management Development (IMD, 2010). The results indicate the existence of five groups of countries characterized by different levels of technology innovation and competitiveness.
