Policy mix peer reviews - The report of the CREST policy mix expert group: third cycle of the Open Method of Coordination in favour of the 3% objective

Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This report constitutes the third report of the Policy Mix Expert Group set up by CREST within the context of the Open Method of Coordination (OMC). The main objective of the Policy Mix Expert Group in the third cycle of the OMC was to build on a pilot exercise carried out in the second cycle of the OMC by conducting a peer review process capable of acting as an instrument of mutual learning within the context of the OMC. The specific aim of the process was to help countries better understand the policy mixes needed to raise R&D intensity by improving overall innovation system performance. The six countries volunteering to be reviewed during the third cycle were Belgium, Estonia, France, Lithuania, the Netherlands and the UK. The reviews generated a series of generic lessons and recommendations of relevance to R&D and innovation policymakers in all Member States and for each of the six reviewed countries.
