Innovation dynamics and the role of the infrastructure

This report shows how the role of the infrastructure - standards, measurement, accreditation, design and intellectual property - can be integrated into a quantitative model of the innovation system and used to help explain levels and changes in labour productivity and growth in turnover and employment. The summary focuses on the new results from the project, set out in more detail in Sections 5 and 6. The first two sections of the report provide contextual material on the UK innovation system, the nature and content of the infrastructure knowledge and the institutions that provide it.
