in emerging economies, various public programs have been created to stimulate local ?rms to adopt innovations, with the ultimate goal of increasing rates of economic development. this paper provides a preliminary attempt to identify factors associated with institutional influences in the processes of innovation diffusion in those areas, and proposes some basic associations: between the governmental interventions and the phases of the process of innovation diffusion; between the actions of governments and the forces that stimulate the process; and between the public policies and the characteristics of the institutional environment generally found in emerging economies. the analysis integrates concepts from various ?elds in the social sciences to offer ?ve propositions, at different levels of analysis, describing various aspects of the potentially strong influence that national governments exert on the process through which innovations are diffused in the institutional environments of the areas known as emerging economies.
