Relative risk and innovation activities: the case of Greece. Innovation: Management Policy and Practice 14(1): 156-159. Research Note (SCOPUS, ISI listed. Impact Factor: 0.513 and 5-year 0.673). In common with C. Kitsos (2012).

In this paper we examine the innovative performance of Greek firms in terms of female participation in research and technological development. We rely on the final results of a research project on women in innovation, technology and science, based on 372 questionnaires selected on a two years time period (2004-2006). For this reason a number of variables are used, like the total number of women employees by age, education level, firm size and sector, as well as women in product and in process innovations. Other variable like their position in the firm (owner, manager), equality in job enrichment, salary, education-training and promotion are also considered. The collected variables are used in a generalized linear model formulation to evaluate the relative risk associated with them.
