Review: "In Canada's National System of Innovation, Jorge Niosi discusses the theoretical underpinnings of the concept of innovation, examining the works of Charles Edquist, Christopher Freeman, Bengt-Ake Lundvall, Richard Nelson, and others around the world. He argues that the concept is particularly useful in analysing science and technology policy and related institutions." "Niosi looks at the history of Canada's national system of innovation (NSI), particularly during the post-war period, illuminating the fact that during and after World War II Canadians developed over 30 research universities, 150 government laboratories, and dozens of government policies aimed at nurturing innovation in private firms, academe, and government organizations. He uses data obtained through questionnaires sent to all the large research and development organizations in Canada to analyse Canada's domestic system of innovation, and he finds increasing collaboration between universities, government laboratories, and private firms." "He concludes that Canada has been quite successful in creating a national system of innovation and that the federal government, through its initiatives and innovative techniques, has been the main factor in the creation of this system."--BOOK JACKET.
