Abstract:

This paper considers the changes in the concept of innovation during recent decades and the degree to which such changes have been of significance to innovation policy. We observe that:
(1) the notion of innovation in research, statistics, and policy is becoming increasingly broad;
(2) while this broader notion is conceptually more adequate for understanding the complexity of innovation activity, it also makes it increasingly difficult to gain a clear, unambiguous picture of innovation activity;
(3) policy concepts built upon this extended understanding of innovation are becoming more complex in terms of governance capacities, coordination capabilities, and evidence-based policy formulation.
The broad perception of innovation will, in fact, require substantial innovations in political and administrative systems to apply.
