New working paper on innovation policy in Finland

Innovation policy is a key public policy in many parts of the world and seen as crucial for securing a better future. It reflects the explicit understanding of knowledge and innovation being fundamental for the economic performance not only of nations but also of regions and cities. In this chapter, we focus on the various rationales informing Finland’s evolving innovation policy, shedding light on the changes in this regard from the modern outset of innovation policy from the early 1990s to the early 2020s.
