Innovation, Knowledge Creation and Technology Policy in Europe

Luc Soete and Bas ter Weel

No 1, Research Memorandum from Maastricht University, Maastricht Economic Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (MERIT)

Abstract: This paper discusses the position of the European Union in the world economy by focussing on innovation, knowledge creation and technology policy. First, we explore and analyse the concept of knowledge and its application in a modern Schumpeterian framework. Second, we address some new insights in the diffusion and other properties of knowledge. Third, we focus on knowledge spillovers by investigating Dutch manufacturing. Thereafter, we examine technology policy.
