Organisational bottlenecks and barriers to innovation: insights for new innovation policy instruments

Organisational bottlenecks and barriers to innovation: insights for new innovation policy instruments

Carsten Dreher, Freie Universitat Berlin

Innovation policy covers a broad range of instruments to respond to complex socio-economic and institutional dynamics associated with new technologies. In this context policy instruments are often designed to remove obstacles and barriers that could hinder organisations' and/or innovation systems' ability to innovate. They represent government interventions that effectively solve problems on the intra- and interorganisational as well as on the system level. However, little is known regarding R&D bottlenecks and barriers on the organisational level and its implications for the choice and design of innovation policy instruments. The purpose of this session is to promote empirical and conceptual contributions, which give insight into specific R&D and innovation management bottlenecks as well as policy instruments in order to discuss new or adjusted policy requirements.
