A Look Inside
Main Description
The book explores emerging topics in innovation policy for more inclusive and sustainable growth, building on concrete examples. The book develops the notion of experimental innovation policy - policies which integrate monitoring and feedback to improve policy impact and policy implementation. Rather than undertaking monitoring and evolution at the end of a policy programme, monitoring is incorporated from the outset, at the policy design stage and occurs continuously to have the greatest impact on policy implementation. This approach should help improve the quality and efficiency of public expenditure supporting innovation policy. Experimental policy making is particularly important for new and emerging innovation domains, where the scope for learning and improvement is the greatest. To make the discussion as concrete and relevant as possible for practitioners and policy makers, three emerging domains of innovation, and pro-poor or base of the pyramid (BoP) innovation.
