Abstract

Radical innovations are an important driver to achieve sustainability in transportation. Against this Background, in the article, we investigate how the current innovation conditions influence radical innovation activities in reality. Based on literature related to the Multi-level Perspective and the National Innovative Capacity we conducted interviews with the inventors of radical innovations for freight transportation in France and Germany to elaborate national specificities and commonalities. Our main findings are: first, the innovation conditions are ambiguous for radical innovations: on the one hand essential input factors for radical innovations are given. On the other hand, we identified many mechanisms which protect the status quo. Second, the innovation determinants for the innovation conditions, the mechanisms of positive and hindering influences are similar in France and Germany. However, nation specific determinants are at the micro level: the management skills of the inventors and the business culture.
