Innovation and Industrial Policy

15-02-2011

Following the Lisbon Strategy for Growth and Jobs, great efforts have been undertaken by most Member States to further improve their innovation support. Moreover, the European Commission aims at a more coherent, more coordinated approach towards innovation policy. The present study gives advice on how innovation policy could be better integrated with industrial and research policy based on a comparative analysis at country level and an in-depth examination of a sample of nine different European sectors.
