Abstract:In this paper the role of technology based knowledge intensive business services (KIBS) in commercialisation of knowledge is examined. The paper is written from the point of view of innovation management and the paper is based on a broad conception of innovation. In this conception innovations are embedded in social activities, there are many kind of innovations besides radical technological innovations, innovation is closely linked to learning, tacit knowledge has an important role in innovation, innovation is a complex process, innovation diffusion is important in addition to innovation creation, and innovation is a collective undertaking and networks are essential for it. A case study of a technology based KIBS firm started in 1997 in the incubator of Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (SAMK) is used to bring the theory to practice.
