The report summarizes the challenges raised by the current globalization trends in the learning economy, and the changes that have been taking place over the last two decades in relation to the innovation process. The implications that these changes have for policy decisions are also considered. It is suggested that policy should focus on institutional and individual learning. The capacity of policy-makers and institutions to understand, adapt and anticipate policy demands is crucial for the system's performance. The second part of the report is devoted to different specific aspects of the innovation process and of policy areas which influence them. Organizational change and human resource development are also discussed. The roles of competition and inter-firm cooperation in the changing economy are examined.
