Innovation tomorrow. Innovation policy and the regulatory framework: Making innovation an integral part of the broader structural agenda

Funded under: FP5-INNOVATION-SME


Innovation Policy Studies - Innovation Policy

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.

The study is published by the Innovation Directorate of DG Enterprise as Innovation Papers No. 28 (EUR 17052)
