Technology sovereignty as an emerging frame for innovation policy. Defining rationales, ends and means

Jakob Edler, Knut Blind, Henning Kroll and Torben Schubert

Research Policy, 2023, vol. 52, issue 6

Abstract: In recent years, global technology-based competition has not only intensified, but become increasingly linked to a more comprehensive type of competition between different political and value systems. The globalist assumptions of the post-Cold War era that reliable mutually beneficial agreements could be reached with all nations, regardless of ideology, have been shattered. A previously less visible, mostly political, risk dimension has been brought to the fore by recent geopolitical and geo-economic developments. Against this background, the notion of technology sovereignty has gained prominence in national and international debates, cutting across and adding to established rationales of innovation policy.
