Abstract

This paper reviews the emerging literature on innovation policy from a practitioner’s perspective, reviews the policy implications of an evolutionary perspective in economics, and identifies newly emerging areas of innovation policy analysis. We show that an innovation system is a dominant policy discourse, that there are limits of policy implications from an evolutionary perspective, and that there is a need for explicitly policy motivated analysis grounded in a broad evolutionary perspective. Innovation policy studies are an area in pre-paradigmatic stages whose dynamism originates from the interaction of theory, policy, and policy learning.
The limited usefulness of policy implications derived directly from either conceptual or empirical analysis
requires more explicitly policy focused research.

User Note

This paper is based on a working paper produced by the author for the World Bank which can be found on http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/1344149/1/A%20Review%20on%20IP%20SRSR%20v6.pdf. Previous versions of this work were presented at GLOBELICS/PRIME conference in Mexico City (Sept 24, 2008) and at Korea University, Seoul seminar (August 7, 2012). I am grateful to the participants of these events and to Yevgeny Kuznetsov for his valuable comments. However, all remaining errors remain entirely my responsibility.
