In the context of the economic, technological and political-institutional changes of the last decades, innovation is of strategic importance. To promote innovation, the characteristics of each territory, the presence of the local actors and the creation of formal and informal networks of cooperation are essential, as they are capable of stimulating the processes of sustainable territorial development. Based on the innovator environment theory, the text analyzes the possibilities and obstacles of promoting innovation in peripheral territories dominated by the presence of small companies and traditional activities, taking into account considerations from empirical studies carried out in Spain.
