Science, Technology and Innovation Policy
Science, technology and innovation are by now widely regarded as the very foundation of economic development in OECD countries. Accordingly, policy-makers have increasingly become concerned with the role of science, technology and innovation policy to promote economic performance and now, also for the solution of societal challenges.
In this program, we seek to reflect on questions such as how can policy promote a better infrastructure to support innovation? What can be done to make sure that the existing technological and scientific infrastructure are effectively utilized across industries? How to incorporate more technologists and scientists across different industry sectors? How to distribute grants and financial support for innovative research and development? How to increase productivity and technological innovation in traditional industries? How to promote effective cooperation schemes between the public sector with the private sector and civil society organizations?
