Technological innovation system and the wider context: A framework for developing countries
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2019

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd The Technological Innovation System (TIS) framework is a systems approach for understanding the development, diffusion and use of new technologies. This paper addresses limitations of the TIS functions approach by complementing its list of functions. In order to analyze the context in which the TIS operates, framework conditions are added to the TIS function approach, drawn from Multi-Level Perspective (MLP) literature, previous literature along with empirical evidence from Colombia. As a result, the paper proposes an extended TIS function approach where the breadth of application of the framework in developed countries is augmented and made more applicable to the developing country context.
