Abstract

This paper is concerned with a comparative assessment of policies and strategies currently being employed by a number of nations to promote science, technology and innovation as a means for wealth creation and prosperity. The work includes a study of policies implemented by the governments of the UK, Canada, USA, Germany and China, and an evaluation based on performance indicators developed by the EU commission's innovation scoreboard.
