“TARGET”- A Targeted R&D (Research and Development) policy has been developed by the Innovation Policy Center in cooperation with 7 other nations and with funding by the EU.
Policymakers have increasingly taken it upon themselves to introduce policies promoting the economy’s ability to host science-based industry. As more research on science-based sectors and innovation has been conducted, and as experience in the business and policy areas has accumulated, arguments for more systemic approaches to policy have increased.
The TARGET approach presented here will help policymakers form a strategic roadmap and determine feasible interventions that lead to a functioning biotechnology system of innovation within a country or region.
The goal of the toolkit is not to present a single recipe of specific policies for success; the variety of cases and their development mean that no single path to a functionally biotechnology sector can be realistically described.
The Target approach helps policymakers form a strategic roadmap and determine feasible interventions that lead to a functioning biotechnology system of innovation within a country or region. This method allows policymakers to come up with a tailored, content specific strategy based on realistic assessments of their country or region’s resources and capacities.
