This OECD Review of Innovation Policy for Sweden offers a comprehensive assessment of Sweden's  innovation system, focusing on the role of government. It provides concrete recommendations on how to improve policies that affect innovation performance, including R&D policies, and identifies good practices from which other countries can learn.




The OECD Review of Sweden’s Innovation Policy is part of a series of OECD country reviews of innovation policy.* It was requested by the Swedish authorities, represented by the Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communications and was carried out by the OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (DSTI) under the auspices of the Committee for Scientific and Technological Policy (CSTP), in collaboration with the Committee for Industry, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE). The review draws on the results of a series of interviews with major stakeholders of Sweden’s innovation system and on a background report commissioned by the Swedish authorities. This background report was prepared by the Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis (referred to as Growth Analysis in this report) under the direction of Dan Hjalmarsson and was authored by Lars Bager-Sjögren and Enrico Deiaco. It contains a broad range of information that is widely drawn upon in this report.
