Science, Technology, Innovation and Pro-Productivity Policies

What have policies to boost science, technology and innovation done for productivity? Which policies are most effective? Which countries have been most successful in using them? This episode of Productivity Puzzles steps away from the usual panel format to engage in a reflective conversation between Bart van Ark and Dirk Pilat, a seasoned expert with over three decades of experience in shaping science, technology, and innovation policies.

Host Professor Bart van Ark is joined by:

  • Dirk Pilat, Research Fellow at The Productivity Institute, University of Manchester; and the Valencia Institute of Economic Research.
