Synopsis:

Technological, entrepreneurial, social, and institutional innovationes are a key factor helping societies to adapt to quickly changing external conditions. The ability to innovate depends on a number of slow-to-change factors like education, institutional quality, research infrastructure, entrpreneurial spirit. Policy framing offers a much more flexible, yet also vital, point of intervenstion. This entails ensuring good communication channels between various sectors (triple/quadruple helix model), regulatory environment, and prioritization of results. The latter can aim to foster competitiveness and regional development (smart specialization), societal missions (Mariana Mazzucato) or wellbeing and quality of life (regionak value theory). There are both synergies and tensions among those approaches so innovation policies at both national and local level can bring very different results.
