Abstract

The article describes a synthetic presentation of the innovativeness proposal. It includes an analysis innovativeness level represented by companies of various sizes and industries from all over the world. The analysis leads to the conclusion, that an innovativeness of Polish companies is at low to moderate level, hence it needs some support. This is rationale for formulating a proposal on enhancing innovativeness by cooperation, skills and competence flow between companies. The paper presents both the rationale and framework of the research project, striving for development of an IT tool/platform supporting innovative knowledge and sill transfer and absorption.
