Navigating green and digital transitions
Five imperatives for effective STI policy
This paper discusses five innovation policy imperatives critical to achieving green
and digital transitions: coordinated government, stakeholder engagement, policy agility
and experimentation, directionality and support for breakthrough innovation. The paper
provides policy examples from Germany, based on the
OECD Review of Innovation Policy: Germany
, and other countries to illustrate in what ways countries have addressed these imperatives.
Overall, the quality and scale of these policy responses need to increase if transitions
are to succeed. Open questions for future policy research are also highlighted.
