Moreover, the paper tries both to identify the drivers of the level of expenditures on innovations and to discover the direction of impact. According to the research results, 45.0% of the surveyed enterprises were engaged in innovation activities, while 37.5% of surveyed enterprises introduced innovations in the year 2011.
