The impact of funding on the 5G innovation ecosystem

Johannes van der Pol: The impact of funding on the 5G innovation ecosystem. In: Scientometrics, 2024.


This paper aims to extend the literature on the impact of research funding. Using 5G as a case study, this paper analyses how funding impacts the 5G innovation ecosystem. Using the functions of innovation systems as a framework, we analyse how several of these func- tions are influenced by research funding. The results a portion of the ecosystem only par- ticipates with funding. In addition the structure of the ecosystem is significantly altered. Research topics are also influenced by funding: some being mostly treated through fund- ing. Funding has little to no impact on the publications that lead to patents.
