In this final chapter the editors seek to draw out the main conclusions from the chapters in the volume and, where appropriate, to draw some implications for policy, some of which are specific to individual chapters, but those of wider significance are highlighted. Well-conducted empirical investigations of entrepreneurship and innovation in former Soviet republics are welcome. Part I opens with Chapter 2 by Kalantaridis and colleagues, which shows that to be innovative businesses in Ukraine, irrespective of the nature of the innovation that is introduced, need to cope with the adverse institutional setting both at a national and a regional level, in order to tap into external knowledge sources. It is the institutional development and change related to the broader processes of market reform that are emphasised. But at the same time the researchers found significant differences in the strategies adopted by enterprises involved in different levels of innovation.
