Innovation strategies for growth: insights from OECD countries (Innovation and Growth: Chasing a Moving Frontier)

Monitoring of broad innovation policy trends and in-depth country-specific reviews reveal how governments from countries at different levels of economic development and with different industrial specialisation seek to strengthen innovation as an engine of growth. This chapter demonstrates that while there is some convergence in terms of broad objectives and policy principles, the government of each country has to customdesign multi-dimensional innovation policies which need to be continually adapted to meet new challenges in the global market. In addition to a synthesis, the chapter presents insights from three country reviews to illustrate common elements and country-specific features of government strategies to promote innovation-fuelled growth.
