No 199606, STEP Report series from The STEP Group, Studies in technology, innovation and economic policy

Abstract: This paper is an outline of some of the issues that are addressed in the TSER funded project, SI4S - Services in Innovation, Innovation in Services. In the paper we discuss the role of services, with a particular emphasis of knowledge intensive services, in innovation processes. We address both issues related to innovation in a variety of service sectors, and issues related to the role of different services towards innovation in other sectors. Sections 2 and 3 give a brief summary of some stylized facts about innovation in services. We describe the objectives and contents of the SI4S project in sections 4 and 5. The paper ends up by addressing some policy issues that are raised when service sectors are included in the framework of S&T policies. The paper suggests on this basis some policy recommendations for innovation policy formulation at the EU level.
