What is the role of government in the innovation?

Post  Yang_jiaxun on Sat Sep 24, 2011 7:15 pm

In the presentations today, government was referred a lot of times when trying to solve the prolem of an innovation.

Government is providing the subsidy, the land, the traffic. However, is the government's role to babysit the innovation project? How an innovation idea and grow and evolve healthily and indipendently?

Great concerns on the government support!

Due to the China business environment, there are not many companies, esp those local companies without and background, get fully supported from the government. Actually, we could regard it as a nice-to-have support but hardly to rely on it and put it as an inevitable part in our business...

Without government strict market entering permition and controlling, it will be better for innovation

Post  zhangmingmin on Sun Sep 25, 2011 1:04 am

Creativity is more easy to happen in a freedom enviroment. From creativity to innovation in business, it needs people take action to do it.
If the free market, people have better enviroment to be creativity. What is more, they have more oppotunities to take their minds to practice.
The market will have more players. It leads to fierce competition. And the competition pushes players to consider their business more creatively. It is a positive circulation.

A successful Innovation is always interacting with the environment. If a creative idea can not be used in reality, it is just an idea, not an innovation.
In China, government is playing the macroscopical management role,that why when we mention the innovations, government is involved frequently.

It's intresting question. normally we connect the "government" to a "certain government", then we sniff and only interpret neggitively. However, I would say the government plays important rold in the innovation. Taking the business mobel of group 5 GB as an example. If the government can support in the tax regulations when the NGO entity collect the waste from the factory, how the program can be proceed than? I think the structure of factories dealing with the waste will be changed. So, I would say, government has the key in its hand to balance the economy as well as the society. A certain regulation can guide the companies in to different path, which makes a lot of sense to sencourage the social innovation.

Also, the attitude from government to innovation is also quite important, if the governement can provide more preferential policies to the companies which have innovation to the society, then the companies wil have more motivation to do the business and bring the benefit to whole society, and then more and more companies will join the group. It was not only the business to NGO, it is also the business to each company to do more innovation and upgrade people's life for the society.

Yepp, government is not (or actually not recommended) to be directly involved in innovation, especially to be a profit related party in the innovation industry. However, it shall influence the trend of innovation to benefit the society such as in some green or health industry.

Government is the background pusher for social innovation. Or in other words, no social innovation can survive without the government's high level policy or regulation influenece, which is actually a way to recognize the social innovation.

For technique innovatio, government is the protector in terms of setting up law to guide the benefit sharing on the license and other knowledge value.

Generally speaking, the government in China has already controlled the upstream in most of industries just like resources, public service, bank, etc. So much regulations was issued to confine the new idea or new companies to come into the market. That means u have to run your idea tightly comlied with the regulations the government issued. While innovation indicates that whether u could jump out of the Box to find a new way for problems solving. Unfortunately it's hard to do so in China.
Yet personnally I think maybe we could innovate a new way to handle the relationship with government, thus jumping out of the Box is expectable.

Besides of above points, another key point i think is that the goverment should enhance the intellectual property rights protection, it is very critical as it will encourage for innovation.

In the passed years, many companies used to copy for technology and short of legal punish for them, it hurted many innovation companies and cause the loss of the passion for innovation. If government no corresponding policy and rules to change this, our industry will loss of competition and the result will inconceivable

Different Countries, Different Governments' role in Innovation

Post  690212fd on Thu Oct 06, 2011 9:06 pm

For the government’s role in the social innovation, it should be considered case by case and country by country. In the developed countries, because economy have achieved a certain high-level, governments have free hands and extra capital in taking an active role in encouraging and sponsoring the Colleges and enterprises to innovatively develop new ideas and products. Under this environment, normally there would be comparably free atmosphere and enterprise for Colleges and Enterprises to spark the innovative ideas. However, in the developing countries, governments' role in the social innovation are not obvious yet since the economy is still backward and governments have to focus son solving more urgent social basic development issues, like infrastructure building and solving domestic poverty issues. So, we should take different attitudes towards the governments’ role in the innovation and creativity in different countries.

Thanks
Louis

Agree with Carol, the government also need to put forward the continuous innovation but better within the social scale instead of commercial range. What government should do is to find innovative ways to have its people live a better life such as reform the health care system in order all the people are affordable to go to the hospital instead of wait to recover spontaneously. Especially in China, there are more and more social prolems arising with the disorderedly fast development these decades and they seriously call for the wisdom and innovation of the government to offer appropriate solutions.

Regarding its role in business scale, please just leave more freedom and encourage such as lower tax rate for those enterprises who intend to do some innovations. Chinese people are not the ethnic group who are good at creativity and innovation. They prefer hardworking instead of wait and think. This specially asks for the support of government to build up a environment in which innovation is highly praised and encouraged.

It's quite a interesting topic, which reminds me the book Ecomonics by Paul Samuelson. In economy point of view, governemnt is really nothing but a coordinator in the society, while market is the one decides what to produce, to whom it produce, how many to produce, how to produce ect. By answeuing these questions, enterprises creat and implement new ideas to fit the requirement by market. Governmnet, by coordinating the business, make laws and regulations to streamline the market order.

However, it a bit different in modern society and it has quite big difference in different regime. In modern society, government adjusts its laws and regulations to control the monoply, the crisis, the dispute in international trade, and to organize the social welfare as well as social contribution, which seems to be involved more in economy. As for socilist regime, government surely controls more in sociel resource.

In addition, government involves more in the industry related to stratigic resources, like some agriculture product and some mineral resource.

Regarding the innovation, I do agree to above ideas, it's only related to guidance and environment building.
