Governance and implementation of third generation innovation policy through collaboration

March 5, 2021


This study is the second part of the Growth Analysis framework project on the so-called third generation innovation policy – i.e. an innovation policy where innovation is seen as a means of societal change rather than an end in itself. In Sweden, these ambitions of societal change are often aimed at transitioning towards sustainable development and strengthening competitiveness. More specifically, the report deals with the role that collaboration plays in such a policy. The aim is to describe both opportunities and challenges connected to collaboration as a means to steer and implement third generation innovation policy.
