Chapter 5 - New policy practice to support spin-offs

Summary of the chapter

This chapter presents an overview of different types of policy instruments that can be implemented to support the creation of spin-offs, and reflects on their possible interactions. It then discusses how country conditions influence the policy mix for spin-off support. New policy approaches are explored, including placing greater emphasis on the quality rather than the quantity of spin-offs supported, as well as on spin-offs initiated by students and early career researchers. Dimensions that are critical for the success of such approaches and the role of research and technology organisations (RTOs) are also analysed. The evidence presented in this chapter is largely based on country policy case studies.
