The aim of the peer review is to provide external advice to the Danish authorities in the process of creating a forward looking national innovation strategy. As central ambition of the Government platform, the Danish Government has decided to develop a comprehensive and ambitious strategy aimed at integrating innovation policy with areas such as energy and environmental solutions, public-private partnerships, etc. The goal of the innovation strategy will be to better address and accommodate solutions to societal challenges. The preparation for the new innovation strategy is headed by the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education, but will include a broad dialogue also with other national and regional authorities as well as major stakeholder institutions and organisations.
The peer review in particular should provide advice on and inspiration from best practise policy initiatives in other EU Member States and beyond.
According to the schedule drafted by the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education the ERAC peer review should be finalised in autumn 2012 allowing for the peer review process to feed into the national innovation strategy presented by the end of the year.
