The overall purpose of the study was:

  • to synthesise the new approaches to innovation policy required by, and being implemented within, a knowledge-based and creative society

  • to identify and review the links between innovation policy and other policies, in particular those policies relating to the legal and regulatory framework for innovation, with a view to providing analytical pointers for further co-ordination.

The study proceeded by using a number of methods:

  • Literature review was used to identify issues, debates and relevant evidence, and brief accounts of each topic prepared;

  • Case studies were used to examine concrete cases of the intersection of these policy areas and innovation; and

  • A High Level Working Group (HLWG) of senior academics, industrialists and policymakers, was convened to meet and discuss these issues, drawing on the material prepared.
