Strategic analysis for European S&T policy intelligence

Objective

The project will produce knowledge - both quantitative and interpretative - central to strategic analysis related to European S&T policy making.

Three focused "policy intelligence dossiers" will be prepared along three different, yet complementary, lines of analysis, which are also policy-making realities:

- The technological strategies of major firms of the Triad: the technology and innovation dynamics of the major firms in the context of their global strategies and competition in world-wide oligopolies, shaping the technological trajectories and setting the pace of the on-going industrial transformation.
- The positions of the European actors and the set up of their networks in key S&T areas: the science-technology interface, where networks of diversified institutional actors create the technological opportunities for future radical innovations.
- The S&T activities profiles of the European regions and the geographic patterns of innovation clusters in Europe: the geographic distribution of the science-technology-innovation activities in Europe, shaped by the strategies of the public and private actors, results in specific regional mix and density of capabilities; in certain areas, they form clusters of innovation, which are the pillars of regional development and the basis of the European economic dynamism.

A report on each subject will improve the accuracy of the knowledge base for policy-making and will enable it to be both debated and shared by the various actors.
