Abstract

In this paper we analyse the dynamics of three emerging innovation systems by using the system functions approach in which the underlying key activities that contribute to the build up of an innovation system are identified. The insights gained with respect to the dynamic functional patterns specific for each emerging innovation system will allow us to identify system failures and develop policy and policy measures that start out from an innovation systems' perspective. We will present initial ideas on the building blocks for a more systemic policy aiming to support the development of new emerging innovation systems (and in doing so break down parts of the old innovation systems).
