La montée de l'ingénierie canadienne

Book
Jorge Niosi
Presses de l'Université de Montréal, 1990

Les noms de Lavalin, SNC, Monenco ou Acres ne sont plus à faire. Grâce à ces firmes, le Canada est devenu le deuxième exportateur d’ingénierie au monde, après les États-Unis.

En effet, c’est l’un des secteurs de technologie intensive où les entreprises canadiennes excellent aussi bien en Europe, aux États-Unis qu’ailleurs.

L’ouvrage de Jorge Niosi explique le processus qui a mené des dizaines d’entreprises canadiennes d’ingénierie à tirer parti de leur expérience sur le marché intérieur pour diriger de grands projets sur les cinq continents.

Le texte met surtout en lumière le rôle prépondérant qu’ont joué les entreprises publiques, notamment Hydro-Québec, la Société pour l’expansion des exportations et l’ACDI dans la naissance et le développement des activités internationales des firmes canadiennes de génie civil.

Technology and National Competitiveness

Book
Jorge Niosi (editor)
McGill-Queen's University Press, 1991.

Technology is an increasingly important factor in the competition between nations for international trade. It affects the range of products a country exports, the quality of these products, and the price for which they are sold. Unlike traditional, neo-classical theories of international trade and investment, which neglect this issue, Jorge Niosi and the contributing authors address it directly.

The first part of the collection reassesses and elaborates on Nobel Prize winner Wassily Leontief’s input-output model and makes use of Michael V. Posner’s technology gap trade theory to examine international trade and import-export factor intensity. The contributors clearly isolate technology as a crucial factor in the foreign commerce of Canada, the US, and other industrial nations. The second part provides the theoretical background, revealing the importance of the industrialized state’s ability to affect international trade by implementing technology policy. The third part analyses the role of government strategy in the development of technology in less industrialized nations faced with a fluctuating world economy and rapid technological change. The fourth part re-evaluates Shumpeterian theory, addressing the market determinants of technological change such as market structure, corporate strategy, and the size of corporations.

The contributors to this volume are Bernard Bonin, François Chesnais, Lester A. Davis, Christian DeBresson, Giovanni Dosi, Faye Duchin, Philippe Faucher, K.E. Hamilton, Thomas Hatzichronoglou, Lynn Krieger Mytelka, Jorge Niosi, Jacques Perrin, and Luc Soete.

Flexible Innovation. Technological Alliances in Canadian Industry

Book
Jorge Niosi
McGill-Queen's University Press 1995; French version published in Presses de l'Université de Montréal, 1995

Basing his study on in-depth interviews with more than 130 companies across Canada, Jorge Niosi analyses the scope of collaborative research activities – both domestic and international – in the fields of biotechnology, electronics, advanced materials, and manufacturing of transportation equipment. He describes successful patterns of collaboration, obstacles and limitations, and the role of public policy, universities, and government laboratories in technological alliances. He compares Canadian partnerships and public policy with similar patterns in the United States, Europe, and Japan.

Canada National System of Innovation

Book
Jorge Niosi
McGill-Queen's University Press - 222 pages - 2000 ISBN 0-7735-2012-0

In this first comprehensive analysis of Canada’s national system of innovation Jorge Niosi discusses the theoretical underpinnings of the concept of innovation and argues that the concept is particulary useful in analysing science and technology policy and related institutions. Niosi shows that Canada has been successful in creating a national system of innovation and that the federal government has been the main factor in its development.

Book
Edited by John de la Mothe and Jorge Niosi
Kluwer Academic Publishers - 281 pages - 2000 ISBN 0-7923-7922-5

‘Biotechnology’ – the integrated use of biochemistry, microbiology and chemical engineering for the technological application of the capabilities of microbes and cultured tissue cells – is quickly becoming pervasive and challenging, rapidly developing both new techniques and industries.

The economic and social dynamics of biotechnology – a joint project between Statistics Canada, the Program of Research on Innovation, Management and Economy (PRIME) at the University of Ottawa and CIRANO at the University of Quebec in Montreal – brings together economic, social and statistical views on the dynamics of this set of emerging technologies. It examines the costs as well as the benefits – the challenges as well as the choices – of the rapidly expanding science-based world of biodiversity, biopharmaceuticals and bioinformatics, and it provides suggestions for future work and research. This project fits into an ongoing research program at Statistics Canada to develop meaningful indicators for science, technology and innovation in a technology-intensive economy. This book tells the story of the inner workings of innovation systems, technological systems and competence blocs in the production, use and diffusion of knowledge.

Biotechnologie et Industrie au Québec

Book
Jorge Niosi, L. Martin Cloutier, Albert Lejeune
Les éditions Transcontinental - 2002 ISBN 2-89472-193-5

Depuis une vingtaine d’années, la biotechnologie se développe au Québec, faisant émerger dans le paysage industriel une multitude de nouvelles technologies, dont la chimie combinatoire, le génie génétique, la recombinaison de l’ADN et la thérapie génique, pour ne nommer que celles-là. Cet essor a bénéficié non seulement aux entreprises spécialisées en biotechnologie, dont la mission est de mettre au point de nouveaux produits et procédés dans ce secteur, mais aussi à des industries traditionnelles aussi diverses que les aliments et boissons, les pâtes et papiers, la chimie et le pharmaceutique.

Cet ouvrage présente les résultats d’une vaste enquête menée à l’échelle de la province et visant à évaluer, sous divers aspects, le développement des biotechnologies au Québec. Pour la mener à bien, les chercheurs ont effectué près de 150 entrevues en profondeur avec des dirigeants de firmes de plusieurs secteurs réparties sur tout le territoire. Le résultat, exhaustif, dessine les tendances actuelles en mettant en lumière les caractéristiques des entreprises ainsi que les facteurs qui influent sur leur croissance et leur localisation. Il jette également un regard sur l’avenir en dégageant leurs perspectives de développement sur un horizon de cinq ans.

Canada’s regional innovation systems

Book
Jorge Niosi
McGill-Queen's University Press - 171 pages - 2005 ISBN 0-7735-2823-7

How Is Innovation Spread Across Canada?
In a companion book to Canada’s National System of Innovation, Jorge Niosi shows how regional innovation is made up of complex systems in which each group of agents reacts to the behaviour of others as well as to public policy incentives. This study, based on patent and company information as well as aggregate figures from Statistics Canada and other sources, is the first analysis of Canada’s regional innovation system in high technology that explores how regional configurations are shaped by national and provincial public policy incentives.

“A significant contribution to the field of science-based clusters in Canada based on new evidence, new relations, and new interpretations.”

Rejean Landry, Director of CHSRF/CHR on Knowledge Transfer and Innovation, University of Laval

Building National and Regional innovation systems

Book
Jorge Niosi
Edward Elgar Publishing - 264 pages - 2010 ISBN 13: 9781849802543

The author highlights how the institutional framework that will allow countries to grow should include universities, government laboratories and policy incentives for human capital and business research and development. He argues that there are no simple policies and no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solutions, and that the majority of developing countries have not yet found the right combinations of institutions. The book suggests that building successful national and regional innovation systems requires at least one generation of continuous effort, significant trial and error, and a thorough knowledge of the experiences of the OECD countries that built those institutions in the past. It moves on to demonstrate how certain countries such as Canada, Finland and Singapore have succeeded in catching-up and how several others, for example Argentina, Egypt, Mexico and the Philippines, have failed. It then pinpoints the main industrial, science, technology and innovation policies required by developing countries to achieve their goals.
