Supporting the national and sub-national research and innovation policy actors by providing a comprehensive methodology to translate the available results produced with the R&D activities into concrete policy making decisions by the means of innovative assessment tools.
Supporting policy making with innovative assessment tools
The project SupPolicy aimed at supporting the sub-national and national research and innovation policy actors by providing a methodology to translate the results produced by innovation assessing tools into concrete policy making decisions. The aim was also to improve the effectiveness of the policy-cycle in order to increase the impact of public interventions through the creation of an effective and coherent national and regional policies framework.
These objectives were pursued through:
-systematic exchange of information and good practices on existing instruments;
-identification and analysis of common strategic issues; and
-implementation of joint transnational policy initiatives in specific technology/innovation areas.
