The chapter discusses opportunities, needs and challenges of innovation development of the selected Central European transition countries with the aim to shed some additional light on institutions and policies that affect the level of innovation dynamics and competiveness. The analysis is based on the statistical indicators and systemic approach to describe the current level of innovation capacities and factors for their improvements. The information presented covers three areas: (1) national policies on innovation in the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia; (2) institutional responses and progress achieved by individual universities, research labs, university-based science and innovation centers, accelerators and incubators; and (3) firm-level innovation: products, services, processes, and business models which exemplify the implementation of the new innovation paradigm. Prezi, Ravimed, Rimac Automobili, Invea-tech and GEA cases are presented to show how the new paradigm generated innovation, sophisticated solutions, and ideas which have opened up new markets or solved long-standing business problems.
