Abstract: The empirical studies in the area of Open Innovation (OI) reveal that there is a significant bias in favour of countries on the technological frontier.

About a quarter of the surveyed firms implemented the OI model in their innovation strategy/business, this being much more widely disseminated regarding the absorption of external knowledge/technology, with almost 40% of firms surveyed acknowledging its use in comparison with the perspective of transfer of knowledge/technology to other organisations - less than 10% provide their 'surplus technology' to other organisations.
