Significance for science
The theme of the research programme is theoretically and scientifically relevant since it deals with processes that are subject to outstanding levels of attention, namely the processes of innovation, knowledge transfer, and high-¬tech companies. Some members have established themselves in the context of the study of social capital and its impact on development, innovation and cognitive mobilisation. We will also continue in this context. Although, as was mentioned, there is great interest in these concepts and topics that are at the forefront of our research, only a few researchers or teams in Europe are dealing with small and medium-sized high-tech companies (SMHTCs) in conjunction with the academic and social entrepreneurship. Further, no study has analysed in detail the scientific/academic activity of SMHTCs and its impact on the organisation of work and organisational culture as well as others, including business parameters. We believe that our group – small yet internationalised – can become one of the cores drawing researchers together with similar interests. We can surely expect that its impact and visibility in the international scientific community will further increase (as indicated by the dynamics of citations in recent years). In particular, we should note the methodological orientation in terms of post-positivism which is reflected in the use of triangulation, meta-analyses and the promotion of reflective (and critical) scientific discourse. Worth mentioning is the tendency towards an integral approach that looks beyond the current fragmentation and too narrow specialisation in the social sciences and the limiting to narrow disciplinary frameworks. Above all, we are developing new models of comparative (cross-national) research (according to a model proposed in Adam, 2014).
Significance for the country
The theme of the programme is not only scientifically important, but also actual from the point of view of developmental strategies and the societal promotion of SMHTCs in both Slovenia and the European Union. Let us mention only the cooperation with the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SORS) with regard to improving the data collection procedure relating to research and development (R&D) and innovation (http://www.institut-irsa.si/images/stories/bibliografije/surs-ekspertiza.pdf). Dealing with large databases and the problems of comparative research-based meta-analysis is an incentive for an applied performance in terms of making proposals to correct certain procedures used by the statistical offices and Eurostat.
