Abstract: In our paper, we develop a conceptual model that investigates the innovation orientation, capabilities and practices, in the shipping sector. We examine a number of intertwined shipping management components and innovation management perspectives, considering both the firm-level diversity and sectoral regularities, so as to survey shipping companies' approach to innovation related business activities. We present a set of shipping innovation observations, articulated as hypotheses/propositions, comprising a combined perspective of strategic, organisational, institutional and technological determinant factors of the innovation process. The purpose of this paper is to develop a contemporary framework of innovation in shipping, addressing pertinent managerial and research implications.
