Innovation, Complexity and Policy

Contributions from 30 years
of innovation policy research in Austria

About the editor

Matthias Weber is Head of Center for Innovation Systems and Policy at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology in Vienna. He has experience in process engineering, political sciences and economics, and worked on innovation systems, strategic foresight, and STI policy.

About the book

This book brings together a set of contributions that show the breadth and depth of the scientific work of Josef Fröhlich and his influence on Austrian research, technology and innovation (RTI) policy. It is edited in honour of the occasion of his retirement as Head of Innovation Systems Department at the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology. The contributors provide an overview of important issues of debate at the intersection of innovation studies and government policy, which have been pivotal for the modernisation and consolidation of the Austrian innovation system since the early 1990s.

This edition of the eBook can be cited. To enable this we have marked the start and end of a page. In cases where a word straddles a page break, the marker is placed inside the word at exactly the same position as in the physical book. This means that occasionally a word might be bifurcated by this marker.
