The lack of qualified personnel influences a series of other barriers to innovation, explained CASE expert Anna Wziatek-Kubiak. This speaks to the highly complementary nature of innovation barriers; and most importantly, it is something to consider carefully when formulating innovation policy. The seminar, held on 13 October 2010, discussed the results of MICRODYN, a four year international innovation study carried out by CASE in a consortium of international research institutions.

The goal of the seminar was to present the array of barriers to innovation which exist among Polish industrial enterprises adapting innovation between 2002 and 2006. In presenting the results, Anna Wziatek-Kubiak focused on two key issues, firstly, on the sensitivity to innovation barriers by two groups of enterprises (regular innovators and irregular innovators) as well as on the complementary trends of innovation barriers within each of these groups.
