Innovation Policy: A Guide for Developing Countries

This volume, prepared by the World Bank Institute (WBI), presents a conceptual framework for understanding and learning about the principles of innovation policies and programs in various policy contexts, with an emphasis on low- and medium-income countries. It is intended primarily for policy-making communities in charge of technology, industry, science, and education, as well as economics and finance—indeed, government as a whole, since innovation policy entails, by its very nature, a whole-of-government approach. The book contains a set of distinct and complementary chapters and provides both policy principles and a host of examples from countries at various levels of development.
