ERAWATCH - on-line information platform on research systems and policies in Europe and beyond
ERAWATCH 2009 Policy Mix country reports
This is the first time that, in addition to all EU 27 Member States, six countries associated to the Framework Programme have been covered: Croatia, Iceland, Israel, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.
The studies assess, in a structured manner, the evolution of the national policy mixes in the perspective of the Lisbon Strategy. They focus on how the combination of policies in different domains areas influence research activities and goals, as they analyze, for instance, how innovation or education policies interact and have an impact in research.
The 2009 Policy Mix Reports have been produced by the JRC's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) and concentrate, in particular, on the national research and development investment targets and on the realisation and improved governance of the European Research Area.
ERAWATCH supports the development of the European Research Area by providing policy makers and analysts working in the field of science and research with concise and up-to-date information and analysis of research systems and policy developments.
