Chapter 1: Technology and innovation policy: setting the stage
Restricted access

The key terms of science, technology, innovation, technology policy, and innovation policy are defined in this introductory chapter. Using these definitions, an argument is set forth that technology policy and innovation policy are related to each other, but each has its own distinct foundations and target variables. The target variable for technology policy is private-sector R & D spending. Innovation policy assumes that technology policy has been effective, and a new technology has entered the market. The remainder of the chapters in the book are summarized.
