Abstract: (WP 20/03 Clave pdf) The study described here aims to make a threefold contribution to the analysis of technology diffusion. It tries to offer a new approach to the study of the dynamic of innovation diffusion, not from the traditional perspective of the rate at which one new technology is fully adopted, but the extent of the diffusion of several technologies and the related phenomenon of standardization. It aims to show a broadened and evolutionary view of the process of technology standardization. Finally, it tries to identify and evaluate the relationships existing between the main characteristics of industries and the attributes of the technology standardization processes in them.
