    KNOGG, an EU-financed thematic network, studies the role of ST&I policies in driving economic growth in six small European countries. It aims to develop guidelines at the EU level for improving knowledge-based growth in small European economies. This second report of the project interprets the current ST&I policy regimes in the six KNOGG countries, using the EU Innovation Trend Chart database and country reports as a point of departure. It extends the EU data to include national research systems, as well as institutions critical to the formulation and implementation of policy. It quantifies and benchmarks the resources devoted to innovation policies and highlights the differences between small countries pursuing a self-sustaining innovationoriented growth strategy and those following the technology-diffusion or catchup path to economic growth.
