Innovation influences most economic mechanisms. It is at the heart of the process of destruction/creation and of the capacity to renew activities: technical progress and productivity play an essential role here. Knowledge and human capital are the essential drivers.
SEURECO develops tools and analytical capabilities to answer many questions, such as:
- How to measure knowledge externalities and the incorporation of human capital?
- What are the new characteristics of the economy based on information and communication technologies?
- What are the consequences of public policies to support innovation?
- How do the combination of innovation assets such as ICT, R&D, vocational training influence tomorrow’s technical progress?
The SEURECO team has acquired a real and long experience in the evaluation of European, national and sectoral research policies (energy, information and communication technology, biotechnologies, etc.).
