02: An international comparison of research, technology and innovation-policy (RTI) strategies

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

In the past few years, debates about RTI-strategies have gained international importance. In most OECD countries, national RTI-relevant “policies” and specific “science and innovation strategies” have become indispensable. The target of this working group is to elaborate national RTI-strategies and their implementation in the respective political context and discuss them in an international comparison. Here it will be essential to also discuss the structures and stakeholders of RTI-governance.
