Can public policies stimulate the demand for innovation in businesses?


Can public policies stimulate
the demand for innovation in businesses?

Time: 10:00, Monday, 30 June 2014
Venue: CASE, Al. Jana Pawla II 61, office 212 (1st floor), Warsaw

Keynote speaker: Peter Lindholm, CASE

Over years innovation policies have merely focused on implementing an innovation infrastructure that could supply services to firms willing to innovate. This includes physical infrastructures (technoparks, incubators, engineering centres, etc.) and soft infrastructure (financial support, business advisory services, etc.). However, the concept of stimulating the demand side was not actively pursued and little evidence were collected to determine which measures could work best in different business environments. This seminar considers how public policies can foster such demands. It aims at engaging with the audience to determine if such measures would be appropriate under the Polish context.

* Peter Lindholm is a CASE associate researcher, with experience in the fields of science and technology, technology transfer, innovation strategies and financing of innovation systems. He has been involved in large consultancy projects contracted by WB, EC DG Enterprise and Industry and EuropeAid. Mr. Lindholm has extensively published on the topic of innovation.
