Therefore, innovations in this sector did not rely heavily on scientific research. (David, 1975; Rosenberg, 1972). A. 7 per 10 000 firms US technology infrastructure and regional innovation poles 25 of knowledge (importing machinery, blueprints, and skilled tinkerers from around the world) all supported these developments.
