The paper - through the analysis of the strategies that El.En, a high tech firm born in 1981 as a spin off of the academic research, has taken to address and manage the economic crisis during the period 2007-11 - aims to highlight and discuss some relevant issues in the industrial and managerial Italian literature in the field of competitiveness of medium-sized enterprise. From the analysis of the El.En. business case - a firm able to deal with the crisis by investing in R&D, focusing on innovation, acquiring companies, and pursuing a strategy of full internationalization - emerge some interesting research ideas to continue in the identification, deepening and systematization of the factors of strength and competitiveness of medium-sized companies in high-tech sectors.

Keywords: High-tech, innovation, biomedical, crisis, R&D, internationalization.
