The Research of Regional Collaborative Innovation Mode in China: Based on Principal Component Analysis

Wei SONG, Shuliang ZHAO


The research on regional innovation is fully developed by many researchers for these thirty years. We can found from prior researches that regional innovation subjects are the enterprise, universities, research institutions, government and intermediary organizations, and each has different functions and effects. But previous quantitative researches are mostly focused on regional innovation environment, innovation ability and the relationship between some factors and regional innovation ability, the qualitative researches about behaviors of innovation subjects is lack. So this paper will apply the principal component analysis and point out what is the mode in each region in China. This paper will supply other researchers a new method to analysis regional innovation. This paper divided into six parts: Introduction, Related researches, Index selection, Empirical research, Conclusion, Limitations.
Key words: Regional innovation subjects; Collaborative innovation; Principal component analysis; Regional innovation mode


Regional innovation subjects; Collaborative innovation; Principal component analysis; Regional innovation mode
