Sažetak
Innovation culture and social determinants of national innovation capacities have rarely been empirically researched in innovation-weak post- socialistic countries despite the fact that innovation is considered the main driver of their economic growth and convergence. Applying an alternative approach in identifying the factors which shape a national innovation culture is challenging as there has been little empirical research in the area and the global cross-cultural concepts of national innovation culture hold little relevance for post- socialist countries. Our transdisciplinary socio-political approach relies on qualitative analyses of the dominant concepts used in political economy and sociology to refer to the socio-cultural and political aspects of Croatia's post-socialist transformation into a capitalist country which occur as the critical formative factors of innovation culture. Croatia was chosen as a typical innovation-weak post-socialist country, where innovation remains weak even 25 years after the collapse of socialism. Our analysis suggests that transition-induced factors dominated by ‘crony variance of capitalism’ have an equal, if not a greater suppressive impact on the current innovation culture than the standard socio- cultural heritage of socialism and cultural inertia
