An exploratory study of innovation in Croatia after independence
Marina Dabić, Timothy S. Kiessling, Vesna Andrijević Matovac, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: One of the main sources of economic growth lies in the successful development and application of new knowledge and innovation. This paper empirically examines innovative practices in Croatian export firms. The survey investigates innovative activity in the last five years. Institutional theory is used to explain the initial lack of innovation in the early 90's with respect to the current explosive growth of innovation, as Croatia is a transition economy that was previously socialist. Our findings suggest that few firms actually are innovative and that innovation is used to become more efficient and to have a high quality product. We also found that larger firms are more innovative than smaller firms.

Measuring social progress by sustainable development indicators
Emira Bečić, Matjaž Mulej, Jadranka Švarc, 2012, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper presents an overview of the progress in the development of indicators of sustainable development (SDI) in Croatia and Slovenia in the context of global challenges. The analysis of indicators is based on the national sets of SDIs developed in recent time by different developers with focus on the EU level in comparison with other regions in the world. Key challenges include: (1) comparability and aggregation variability of SDI in relation to the quality of data determined by the sustainable development policies; (2) impacts and reflections of compiled SDIs on different kinds of user needs; and (3) Social responsibility, as a contribution to, and frameworkof sustainability. The paper concludes with a consideration of a critical role of SD in measurement of progress in society and some key lessons learned related to the difficulties in implementation of SDI coming from highly fragmented compilation of SDI that usually depends on the needs ofthe end-users.
