Helsinki, 28 September, 2005 — New Publication: Innovation Policy Based on Flexibility and Dynamism

Operational dynamics, reaction speed, and the attitude towards technology and innovation are, in the Far East, in the class of their own. Equally, Finland is doing well with its strengths in solid cooperation between industry and R & D as well as in efficient networking. This is how Dr Heikki Kotilainen from Tekes, the National Technology Agency of Finland evaluates in his internal study on best practices in selected leading innovative countries.

The study was carried out between August 2004 and August 2005. The countries were selected partly according to innovation index statistics and partly on Tekesí own criteria. The intention is not to make a comprehensive study of all leading countries, but rather to gather ideas for new philosophies, methodologies, and instruments
for innovation support.

The study is available in pdf form.
