This presents a case study on the application of the OECD anticipatory innovation governance framework to develop and manage anticipatory innovation ecosystems in Latvia. Part I provides a justification for anticipatory innovation ecosystems and proposes a multi-level approach for their governance. Part II identifies opportunities and challenges for implementing this approach in the Latvian context and offers recommendations for the development of anticipatory innovation ecosystems in Latvia.
Part I of the argues that anticipatory innovation ecosystems are a promising approach for knowledge generation, innovation governance, and coordinated action towards achieving policy goals. It proposes a multi-level approach for the governance of such ecosystems, emphasizing the need for strategic coordination, stakeholder engagement, and adaptive management. This approach includes a governance framework that outlines the roles and responsibilities of different actors and institutions, as well as processes for monitoring and evaluation.
In Part II, the analyzes the opportunities and challenges for applying the anticipatory innovation governance framework in Latvia. The analysis identifies the need for stronger coordination and collaboration among different actors in the innovation ecosystem, including public authorities, research institutions, and the private sector. It also highlights the importance of addressing barriers to innovation, such as limited access to financing and a lack of entrepreneurial culture.
Based on these findings, the report provides recommendations for the development of anticipatory innovation ecosystems in Latvia. These recommendations include strengthening the governance framework for innovation ecosystems, promoting collaboration and coordination among stakeholders, and addressing barriers to innovation through targeted policy interventions.
In conclusion, this offers valuable insights into the potential of anticipatory innovation ecosystems as a governance approach for promoting innovation and achieving policy goals. The case study of Latvia provides useful examples and lessons for other countries seeking to develop similar ecosystems, while the proposed multi-level governance approach offers a useful framework for guiding their development and management.
