Innovation and sustainable development have become buzzwords in the 21st century with the idea of creative destruction launched by Joseph Alois Schumpeter being the base for evolutionary economics. However, new institutional economics helps to understand the necessity of support provided to entrepreneurs and innovators by science and administration to reduce the risk of launching the said innovations. This e-book is devoted to selected types of innovation. Every type of innovation is described with the use of theoretical background and is enriched by adequate case study. Traditional division into four types of innovation, proposed by J.A. Schumpeter (1934), containing product, process, organizational and marketing innovations, was widely accepted, including European Union institutions (OECD/Eurostat, 2008). The concept of innovation has long been dominated by a technical approach to the innovation process, despite the economic arguments exposed by one of the precursors of the theory of innovation and, at the same time, the school of evolutionary economics—Joseph Alois Schumpeter. Frequently, in the context of innovation, it is indicated that organizational and marketing aspects play a part in the successful introduction of innovation onto the market. The structure of the book is based on the typology proposed by Keeley, Walters, Pikkel and Quinn (2013), which focuses on the economic character of innovations. Ten types of innovation are directly related to Schumpeter’s and Oslo Manual classification. A new set of innovations emphasize the economic side of innovation process. The technical novelties are to support new configuration, offering or customers’ experience. This new approach is based on presumptions coming from design thinking idea, leading to user—driven innovation and on cooperation with institutions and entities supporting innovation process. The chapters are devoted to every type of innovation, grouped into three major parts: innovations based on configuration, offering and experience. In the book, configuration includes types of innovations focused on innermost workings of an enterprise and its business system. Offering part contains the types of innovations, that are focused on an enterprise’s core product (good or service), or a collection of its products. The last part, dedicated to innovations based on experience, is focused on more customer-facing elements of an enterprise and its business system.

This e-book aims to present the most critical aspects of knowledge about using experiments in economics and practical tools for using them. The topic is extended to the more advanced and increasing in popularity area of biometric research. The book is divided into three parts mirroring experimentation. The first part provides theoretical background and tips about organising own research. The chapter is concluded with a guide focused on writing a research report in APA style. This part includes an example of the actual research report. The next part has two chapters, and both are guided tours allowing to plan and conduct eye-tracking research and electrodermal activity research (EDA). The chapters contain details about preparing experiments, conducting them, using the dedicated software to analyse collected data and interpreting the default charts. The last part is devoted to the data analysis and is universal, goes beyond the biometric experiments. There are three chapters in this part covering the standard procedures used in the analysis of experiments. The first part includes tests for one hypothesis: parametric t-test and One-Way ANOVA and non-parametric siblings: Mann Whitney U test and Kruskal-Wallis test. The next part describes tests allowing testing more hypotheses: ANOVA without repetition and ANOVA with repetitions. Furthermore, the last chapter deals with dependent samples, which are a popular approach in experiments. This part describes the dependent sample t-test and Wilcoxon test. The effect sizes calculations are included; each test is shown with screenshots from SPSS and some additional screenshots from Excel. This approach allows following the procedure step by step. The examples help easily understand procedures and interpretations; they were chosen from areas of sustainability and innovations to match the general idea of the e-books series prepared within the CENETSIE program. The book contains texts that can be useful in the teaching process. It can be helpful in graduate programs in economics and business schools. Programs of doctoral schools cab benefit from this book as well.

Changes in different aspects of our life that we witness do not omit the corporate social responsibility (CSR) area. Thus, it is impossible to omit a new approach to defining the above-mentioned concept, initiated by the European Commission. The new definition of corporate social responsibility does not underline the voluntary way of taking part in social initiatives (“companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interaction with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis” – COM (2006) 136), but directly indicates “the responsibility of enterprises for their impacts on society” (COM (2011) 681). The change in defining the CSR concept can be related to Visser’s view of CSR. He defined CSR stages by applying IT nomenclature and using the 1.0 and 2.0 abbreviations (as CSR 1.0 and CSR 2.0) to determine the newer version of CSR and emphasizing a certain continuity with the previous one. He mentioned and described also the possible changes in the CSR area and defined five stages that are determined by the economic age of an enterprise. Obviously, although the stages that Visser proposed have their logical continuity (age of greed, philanthropy, marketing, management and finally responsibility), it will not be easy in economic everyday practice to unequivocally identify the current level of development of CSR on a global scale. There are visible large development disparities even on the Polish territory, not to mention a larger scale. Therefore, it is worth asking about the future directions of CSR development. The reference point (at least on the European scale) can be the renewed EU strategy 2011–14 for Corporate Social Responsibility. It mentions, among others, the need to enhance the visibility of CSR and disseminate good practices, improve and track levels of trust in business, improve company disclosure of social and environmental information, integrate CSR into education, training and research, emphasize the importance of national and sub-national CSR policies. In response to such a task (especially in relation to the need for integrating CSR into education and research), I present with pleasure the Research Papers of Wrocław University of Economics, which is a set of Polish perspective on selected current and future problems in the area of CSR. At this point I wish to address my thanks to the reviewers of the Research Papers, whose efforts in the form of comments and suggestions expressed in the reviews contribute also a special part to the CSR discussion held on the pages of the current volume.

Niniejszy numer Zeszytu Naukowego Małopolskiej Wyższej Szkoły Ekonomicznej w Tarnowie poświęcony jest zagadnieniom ważnym we współczesnej gospodarce i społecznej przestrzeni. Wskazano w nim na konieczność podjęcia działań wspierających biznes przez instytucje państwowe i Unii Europejskiej w krótko i długoterminowym okresie, jak również wprowadzenie nowych zasad i aspektów planowania, ładu i polityki przestrzennej – warunkujące realne procesy gospodarowania oparte na zasobach, racjonalności i optymalności – zapewniające de facto trwały i zrównoważony rozwój. Sporo miejsca poświęcono nowym formom organizacyno-prawnym inkubatorów przedsiębiorczości Fablabów w szczególności, organizacji nonprofit, związków i organizacji sportowych. Podkreślono kluczowe znaczenie zwiększenia sprawności systemów zarządzania pracą, kulturą bezpieczeństwa pracy i lepszym niż dotąd wykorzystaniem innowacyjnych technologii mobilnych IT przez osoby starsze z uwzględnieniem zasad ergonomii. W tekstach dotyczących tematyki zarządzania finansami przedsiębiorstw przedstawiono wyniki badań empirycznych dotyczące kwestii wprowadzania w praktyce przedsiębiorstw nowych instrumentów pomiaru i ewidencji wyników finansowych przedsiębiorstw, nowych sposobów obliczania i maksymalizowania wartości dla akcjonariuszy. Artykuły, będące rezultatem prac naukowych prowadzonych w ramach badań podstawowych i wdrożeniowych, konceptualnych i empirycznych, zawierają wiele interesujących poznawczo oraz aplikacyjnie informacji. Rezultaty tych badań mogą zostać wykorzystane zarówno przez badaczy problematyki zarządzania, nauk społecznych, jak i przez praktyków dążących do zapewnienia rozwoju organizacji, w których działalności uczestniczą. Zeszyt jest dziełem pracowników badawczo-dydaktycznych naszej Uczelni oraz innych szkół wyższych w kraju, tj.: Akademii im. Jakuba z Paradyża, Uniwersytetu Ekonomicznego w Poznaniu, Uniwersytetu Ekonomicznego w Krakowie, Uniwersytetu Pedagogicznego im. KEN w Krakowie, Uniwersytetu Zielonogórskiego, Uniwersytetu Szczecińskiego.
