Key Issues for Innovation and Development (Innovation and the Development Agenda)

This chapter presents some of the overarching issues that emerge throughout this volume. Issues relating to the conversion of knowledge to value and its relevance for development are contemplated from various angles. One focus is innovation systems, learning and the policy implications for developing countries. Another considers a framework for the design of strategies and policies for developing countries and issues relating to heterogeneity, localisation and coherence. Still another is specific channels of knowledge acquisition and commercialisation and the competences and capacities needed for innovation among foreign and local actors.
