Efficiency of research and innovation systems for economic growth and employment

Edquist, Charles LU (2014)
Abstract
The concept of a holistic innovation policy is defined in this paper, and it is discussed what it is, why it is relevant and how it can be implemented. One of the main conclusions is that the innovation policies in European countries are still linear (and not holistic), in spite of the fact that the linear view has been completely abandoned by innovation researchers - and replaced by a systemic view on innovation processes. Why innovation policy is still linear is
