Advanced Public Procurement as Industrial Policy: The by Gunnar Eliasson

By Gunnar Eliasson

The basic subject matter of this e-book is to enquire the macroeconomic importance of the "cloud" of technological spillovers that surrounds complicated commercial construction: In what methods do technological techniques unfold and give a contribution to fiscal progress? What guidelines will be constructed to maximise the industrial strength of thoughts? those issues are rather well timed within the context of world fiscal quandary, government-sponsored stimulus applications, and the continued evolution from manufacturing-based to knowledge-based economies. To discover those concerns intensive, Gunnar Eliasson specializes in an in depth case examine of the improvement of Saab’s army plane, the JAS 39 Gripen system—a undertaking that contains complicated technological ideas, a posh community of providers, public-private zone collaboration, and either army and advertisement functions. The adventure within the airplane is additionally in comparison with spillover results in telephony, desktops, and clinical applied sciences. The research emphasizes the position of purchaser competence in elevating the standard of innovation provide, and of entrepreneurship and industrially useful enterprise capital for commercializing spillovers. Eliasson integrates micro-econometrics and case research research with macroeconomics, innovation examine equipment, and enterprise management thought to degree the consequences of expertise spillovers and generate an excellent empirical starting place for coverage research. particularly, he considers:

  • the function of efficient public (government) procurement as a brand new call for coverage to aid innovation supply
  • the emergence of the complex corporations as "technical university," the place continuous studying occurs and entrepreneurship between buyers and different stakeholders is encouraged
  • issues of highbrow estate rights and the social price of technological innovations
  • the implications for strategic company perform and public policy

The result's a e-book that would entice a wide spectrum of teachers, leaders, and policymakers attracted to the dynamics of innovation provide, commercialization of applied sciences and monetary growth.

This early military radio technology supported Ericsson’s early entry into the mobile telephone systems market and JAS 39 Gripen-related wireless data communication and antenna technologies have so far helped keeping Ericsson as the leader in this extremely competitive global market. While the Ericsson story is about the conversion of an already established large company in its entirety onto a new technology base, the Swedish automotive safety industry and Autoliv is an entirely new creation. Because of the pioneering work on aircraft safety systems and the close contacts between Saab and the two Swedish automobile companies Saab Automobile and Volvo Car, aircraft safety technology migrated early through the movement of aircraft safety engineers into automobile design and development (Case 17).

4). The customer contribution to a joint product development is based on technical product and user knowledge on the part of the customer. The customer may even take on part of the development itself and outcontract the rest. The Swedish military procurement agency FMV has used what they call functional procurement, meaning that it takes on responsibility for some of the development work related to particular product functionalities, and parcels out other jobs in the market. 8 Competitive Bidding and Competition Policy 15 development work for military aircraft.

In the wider European context the analysis changes (see Chap. 7). The spillover pick up area of political interest widens and the potential growth effects increase, even though their geographical market allocation is difficult (impossible) to predict. To optimize the policy outcome the national policy maker should now take on the broader public policy role of a facilitator to make sure that the spillover pick up rate from large European procurement projects (public as well as private, military as well as civilian) is maximized within the EU region.
