Up until the 1980s, innovation research was largely limited to case studies or
to data on the creation of new knowledge, as measured by R&D investments,
scientific publications, patented inventions, and the stock of scientists and
engineers. The dominant perspective viewed innovation as synonyinous with
R&D based creative activities to develop technical inventions. Theories of
innovation were frequently based on science-push models in which inputs of
R&D or scientists led to outputs of publications or patents.
