Business innovation policies: Findings and policy conclusions (Business Innovation Policies: Selected Country Comparisons)

This chapter describes the context for the study, and reflects on some of the main findings as they relate to policy challenges faced by Canada and other countries. Key trends in business innovation policies and their rationales are summarised. Observations are also made on the merits and demerits of direct and indirect support measures, such as grants and R&D tax credits respectively. Consideration is also given to the overall policy mix -the combination of policy instruments deployed to achieve policy goals.
