  • But not all innovation is comes directly from R&D – other type of innovative activity is important as well – design, marketing, organisational change.
  • Collaboration among within a country and across borders is increasingly common.
  • The “cloud” is another example:NYT made use of a cloud service provided by Amazon S3 (Simple Storage service) where they uploaded all articles from 1851 to 1980 – 11m, 4TB of data in 24 hours at a cost of 240$.
  • KNM: knowledge is non-rival – one piece of K does not prevent the simultaneous use of the same piece by another party – thu steh need for IPRs are important because ; need to protect to reward the inventor, but this needs to be balanced against to socially optimal situation where as many agents have the K as possible (“spillover”)
  • Need to treat like our finnacial system – better data, and better international coordination
  • Tapping into a global innovation network = 400+ components from over all over the worldApple did very little R&D – rather most of its effort was spent on design, marketing and software development (iTunes Music Store) and the difficult negotiations of getting the “Big 5” music labels to agree to make their music available These intangibles / intellectual assets were the key to the success of this product, allowing Apple to capture half of the sales price and 70% of the legal digital download market in just 7 years (25% of all).

  • 18. Policy Message 1: Policies need to be upgraded to reflect that innovation is a systemStrong innovation performance relies on a well- functioning system: • Involving both “push” (supply R&D and HRST) and “pull” (demand) factors (markets, consumers; standards; public procurement); • Linking the elements of the system (labour mobility; University / Industry; diffusion; MNE & SME). Wali Memon 18
  • 19. Policy Message 1 bis: Governments should foster platforms and markets that strengthen the system• ICT as a platform that lowers the barriers to innovation, network formation and collaboration (Broadband);• Provide access to public data (e.g. Maps, weather, publicly funded research data);• Develop markets and networks for knowledge that can service many actors (e.g. market for patent licenses). Wali Memon 19
  • 20. Finding 2:The mix of actors is changing Need to broaden our perspective from:  Multinational enterprises;  Public research organisations & universities;  The G7.Wali Memon 20

  • 25. Policy Message 2: Develop a Strategy for Innovation • A “horizontal” approach: – Leadership & long-term vision; – Co-ordination via the budget; – Seek coherence: young ≠ small; – Division of labour with regions: build on indigenous strengths; seek a critical mass. • Evaluate & monitor through improved measures (measurement agenda); • Strengthen multilateral co-operation of STI.Wali Memon 25

  • 29. Policy Message 3: Innovation: “Now more than ever”• “Stay the course”: continue to support long-term investments in innovation (basic R&D); – Not an “on / off” incremental investment, but accumulative – Cutting spending could limit growth and the ability to address global challenges• Not all policies require large public investment – Reform and streamline existing policies; remove barriers; – Use demand-side measures (procurement, standards); – Inject innovation into the public sector (e-Gov).• Better understand the broader role of innovation and its impact on economic growth Wali Memon 29
  • 30. Conclusion or“What are some of the take-aways?” Innovation – Now more than ever. Innovation is broader than R&D – it is a system. Policies for innovation, not a narrow set of innovation policies; Innovation policy is more than budget allocations. Better measures to reflect the central role of Innovation to the economy. New data that:  Confirm some of our intuition (collaboration)  Challenge some priors (small vs. young; drivers of growth)  Set out an important measurement agenda. Wali Memon 30
