This timely book brings together cutting-edge research on the important subject of science and innovation (S&I) policies. The contributors – distinguished social science scholars – tackle the key challenges of designing and implementing public policies in the context of the new knowledge economy.

They provide an extensive overview of the most advanced methods for designing, monitoring, and evaluating S&I policies, and analyse current applications in a wide-ranging selection of fields along the innovation supply chain, from legal and institutional landscapes to the industrial sector. Topics discussed include technology transfer from higher education institutions, innovation support at industry level, measures sustaining venture capital, and firm internationalisation processes.

Bridging policy research and policymaking via authoritative ‘real-world’ studies, this book will be warmly welcomed by both academics and policymakers with an interest in the design and implementation of public policies supporting S&I.
