Innovation support system has been seen in three different segments, namely, National Innovation System (NIS), Regional Innovation System (RIS), and Sectoral Innovation System (SIS).
There are institutions/organisations at national level created to augment the firms’ initiatives to innovations. Together the support system is grouped as National Innovation System (NIS). The effectiveness of the NIS is examined by the extent of its use by the innovative firms at the State/UT levels.
States/UTs have been considered as regions. The regional or State/UT level factors that can augment innovation activities of the firms are grouped as Regional Innovation System (RIS). Some of these factors considered here are: State/UT level infrastructure (road. Power etc), human resource generation (health and education) along with extent of industrialisation and per capita NSDP (Net State Domestic Product) have been used.
Different sectors have different innovation dynamics. Under a particular economic, industrial and other policy environment certain sectors might show more dynamism towards innovation compared to other sectors. Such sectors develop their own systems of Innovation and innovation dynamics. Such innovation dynamics have been grouped into Sectoral Innovation System (SIS).
The correlation between support systems and innovation indicator is presented in the form of following 3 dashboards:
