Empirical Research on the Influence of Marine High-end Human Resources on Marine Knowledge Innovation——With Organizational Incentive and Technological Innovation as Mediating Variable

Weihong Zhang(School of Accounting & Finance, Shandong Institute of Commerce and Technology)


The main purpose of this paper is to explore the intermediary role of policy incentives and marine technological innovation in marine high-end human capital promoting marine knowledge innovation. Previous studies on the impact of marine high-end human capital on marine knowledge innovation mainly focused on the direct impact of marine high-end human capital on marine knowledge innovation, while ignoring the role of intermediary variables. Based on 512 sample survey data from 138 organizations in 16 coastal cities of China, this paper uses structural equation model to examine the relationship between high-end human capital and policy incentives, technological innovation and marine knowledge innovation. The research shows that marine high-end human capital has an impact on marine knowledge innovation through policy incentives and marine technology innovation. Policy incentives and marine technology innovation play a full intermediary role in the relationship between marine high-end human capital and marine knowledge innovation.
