Policy Shapers and Policy Makers in the Public Sector

During the last thirty years, world societies have undergone profound transformation because of sweeping new technologies that have had a compelling effects on peoples’ lives. In addition, all kinds of innovations have changed the way we live and work but also the ways we conceive, design and produce goods and services and the ways we grow world economies. Innovation is the single most important powerful driver for this transformation which transcends the technological paradigm and extends to societal, cultural, and economic objectives. Innovation is everywhere and is accelerating. It is driven globally not only by creative companies, and young startups, but also by socially conscious non-profit foundations that stimulate new ways of progressive thinking.

However, innovation is not the privilege of the private sector. Time and again it has been proven through academic research that the public sector plays a pivotal role in stimulating, financing, and creating innovation. Its role is so important, that it has been described as really pivotal by leading academics. Public sector initiatives have not only strengthened policy and produced new knowledge, but have also (and more importantly) given birth to successful place-based initiatives for regional development, spurring innovation, growth and jobs. In this endeavour, policy shapers and policy makers have been immensely successful when cooperating with (and involving) the other constituents of the Triple Helix: universities and the business community.
