Abstract

From a common reference framework on uncertainties, the project articulates four subprojects: 1) uncertainty management in major/radical innovation activities in established companies, focusing on issues of innovation organization and the emergence of an innovation function in the company, valuation and portfolio management of innovation projects, innovation processes, and (in)compatibility between incentives to managers multiplied by the long-term actions typical of major/radical innovation; 2) entrepreneurial action in start-ups focused on uncertainty management in the enterprise's ecosystem of value co-creation, and in the decision-making heuristics that shape entrepreneurial action; 3) legal and institutional uncertainties in technology contracts (research and development (R&D)), particularly between public and private actors; and 4) uncertainties in public policies aimed at inducing innovation, to contribute in the redesign or development of more effective public policies. Therefore, the project uses both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. Qualitatively, subprojects 1 and 2 adopt the methodology of longitudinal case studies, following the evolution of companies and their decisions over time; projects 3 and 4 analyze documents and interview actors. Quantitatively, surveys in cooperation with entrepreneurial associations (Anpei, MEI) and analysis based on microdata of official databases (Pintec, PIA, PAS, RAIS, Secex and others). The project aims at contributing to the literature on innovation management, entrepreneurial action, and public policies. It articulates actions with leading researchers worldwide. (AU)
