SEA-EU-NET publishes study on innovation support structures in Southeast Asia

7. Aug. 2014

ZSI experts edited and co-authored the recent report on innovation policies and support systems of selected countries

With this study, the SEA-EU-NET project presents an analysis of the variety of innovation support policies, programmes and instruments available in selected Southeast Asian countries. The report first offers a regional overview and then covers Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam individually.
Public programmes and indirect public support schemes are explored. In addition, venture capital availability, intellectual property rights systems, and innovation-related international cooperation patterns are discussed. The study aims at sharing information about innovation policy in Southeast Asia and supporting cooperation and joint innovation policy-making between the region and Europe. It can facilitate policy and programme makers’ work by providing a state-of-the-art overview of innovation support systems in the region. Finally, it can also assist innovation performers from the public and private sectors in identifying available support for their research and commercialisation endeavours.
This report will be followed up and accompanied by a related study on innovation framework conditions (regarding intellectual property rights, material transfer agreements, and public procurement for innovation) to be published in autumn of 2014.
