Innovation brokers in the Swedish construction sector
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
As demand on the construction sector to improve has grown in many countries an increasing understanding of the complexity of the national innovation system has developed. in other industrial sectors, with similar complexity, the concept and the importance of innovation brokers has been identified. This concept is examined here in the context of the Swedish construction sector. A number of organisational types, acting as innovation brokers, have been identified. There are no organisations acting as innovation brokers solemnly and their level of independency can to some extent be questioned. This may not be a problem as such; because of the construction innovation system in Sweden varies from the innovation systems from where the concept of innovation brokers has been identified.
