Abstract

This paper aims to use quantitative method to analyse the suitability of regional technical innovation and further compare its influence to regional economic growth in China. Based on literature review, the authors develop an evaluation index system containing four aspects (namely, innovators, innovation resources, economic environment and technical environment). By using the Niche-Fitness Model, 31 Chinese provinces' regional technical innovation suitability is assessed into a square matrix. Using the public data, the regression analysis of technical innovation suitability and economic growth of each province is carried out and correlation is found existing in regional technical innovation suitability and regional economic growth: the higher technical innovation suitability is, the bigger contribution of technical innovation to economic growth
