Basque Country STI policy (OECD Reviews of Regional Innovation: Basque Country, Spain 2011)

Over the last 30 years, the Basque Country has implemented an STI policy driven by a need to boost industrial competitiveness adapted to the region's industrial footprint. This chapter first reviews the evolution of STI policy in order to understand the region's position today in terms of policy mix and system actors. It then analyses the region's current STI policies and programmes to assess the relevance of different measures for current and future innovation challenges. Finally, it reviews aspects of the policy mix that merit further adjustment in future STI plans, including emerging areas in innovation policy.
