S&T Innovation Systems: The Role of Manufacturing, Institutions and Leaders

  • Eoin O’Sullivan
Part of the Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management book series (ITKM)


This chapter offers reflections on best practices in science and technology (S&T) policy. In particular, the focus is on policy issues related to the effective translation of new S&T ideas into an industrial context that creates jobs and generates value for the national economy. Observations are based on analysis of recent trends in S&T policy relating to manufacturing research, as well as on experiences and insights from a range of S&T initiatives, R&D agencies and policy studies in several countries.
