Abstract: The paper contributes to research on innovation systems; in particular, the current debate on rationales for innovation policy by providing a framework to identify systemic problems in a given system of innovation and test the framework empirically. The data was drawn from the Thai Community Innovation Survey in the period after which a major change in the country’s innovation system policy had been initiated. By hierarchical factor analysis, systemic problems suggested by prior studies are grouped into four components: institution, network, science and technology infrastructure and other support services. Our framework and methodology may also be applied in the analyses of systemic problems in other countries, especially for the purpose to investigate a mismatch between policies and problems.
