Foundations for Policy Consensus
Chapter 11: Conclusion: A comparison of national and regional innovation ecosystems
In this concluding chapter, we present a comparative analysis of the results obtained from our eight case studies – innovation ecosystem maps for Israel, Poland, Germany, France, Spain, Greater Toronto, Shanghai and Singapore, described in detail in the previous chapters. Employing the methodology we have developed (see Chapter 2) has generated the visual foundations that enable us to concretely portray of those nations’ innovation ecosystems, always keeping in mind the main goal – to achieve consensual understanding of the innovation system, as a basis for building effective pro-innovation policies. We note as well that a major focus of this methodology is to distinguish between supply-side and demand-side innovation drivers.
