Broad-based innovation policy for all regions and cities

This publication summarises the main findings of a series of high-level expert workshops, organised with support by the European Commission, to deepen the understanding of how OECD countries can move towards a broad‑based form of innovation policy for regions and cities. This report examines where current tools for innovation policy are too narrowly focused, mainly targeting research and development, as well as science and technology-based interventions. It seeks to help empower firms to benefit from global trends and technological change to better adapt to the different capacity and innovation ecosystems across regions and cities. It enables them to embrace disruption other than fight, all while creating adaptive strategies and integrating mechanisms that support learning into policy development.
