Abstract
This paper draws on cluster innovation theory to recognize key factors impacting two types of innovation mode of clustered firms. An index system of the factors impacting clustered firms` innovation is provided on the perspective of micro (enterprise), medium(cluster and GVC), and macro (government). Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used to quantify the weight of each factor. The results show that in the four first-level indexes, clustered firms’ abilities are the key factor to impact their innovation strategies. According to the comparison among the second indexes, ten of them, including R&D capability, marketing capability, GVC governance, and so on,have significant influences on the their innovation strategies. Our findings have theoretical and practical implications for cluster research in general.
