Governance of Innovation Systems, Vol. 1: Synthesis Report


This report is a synthesis of collaborative work in the Monitoring and Implementing National Innovation Policies (MONIT) Project. It builds upon earlier OECD work on national innovation systems and extends the analysis to include a broad agenda of governance issues that governments face in further developing innovation policy. It includes analyses of key trends and issues of governance like policy coherence and integration, co-ordination, stakeholder involvement, and innovation policy learning. The underlying proposition of the report is that governments will need to adapt their institutions and practices of innovation policy making in light of emerging pressures from a dynamic and more complex economic and social development.
