dc.description.abstract Evidence of user innovation in firms in Maputo Province is presented. This results from a case study of firms that had previously been identified in the Mozambican National Innovation Survey 2009 as process innovators. While the observations are too few to support statistical inferences, they demonstrate the presence of user innovation in firms and they suggest further work on the policy implications, especially related to support for innovation in firms that perform no research and development. The case study found little evidence of the sharing of knowledge gained through user innovation, in contrast with findings from industrialized countries but closer to results from the newly industrialized country of Korea. en
