Theworkwill start fromthe state-of-theartwith the following goals targeted. Firstly, to identify the paths that newinnovative concepts usually follow, what key determinants are,which actors are involved, andwhat policy has been doing and can do. As part of this, a typology of variables is established,which will be the basis for the identification of successful adoption paths. Illustrations are provided of the performance of different innovative concepts in the seaport sector.
