The Need for New Perspectives in European Commission Innovation Policy

The Need for New Perspectives in European Commission Innovation Policy

(p.239) 13 The Need for New Perspectives in European Commission Innovation Policy
The Globalizing Learning Economy

Margaret Sharp

Oxford University Press

Considers the policy implications of the perspectives on socio–economic development in Europe opened up by work done on the globalized learning economy. It raises questions, first, about what sort of policies are needed, second, about the current focus of innovation policies in Europe, and, finally, about the changes in policy needed to face up to the challenges of the next two decades. It draws upon the research summarized in Bengt‐Åke Lundvall's and Susannah Borrás's volume The Globalising Learning Economy (1998) and also on research on industrial policy currently underway in the European Commission's Targeted Socio–Economic Research (TSER) project, ‘Science, Technology and Broad Industrial Policy’ (SOEl‐CT97‐1053), and on the author's own work on the EU's research and technological development (RTD) policies summarized in the book published in 1998 with John Peterson (Peterson and Sharp, 1998).
