Innovation Impacts: Measurement and Assessment

Ratings: (0)|Views: 59 |Likes:
The Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation asked the Council of Canadian Academies to assemble an expert panel to assess best practices in measuring the socio-economic impacts of government spending on research and innovation activities that could be applied in the Ontario context. The Panel was chaired by Esko Aho, Senior Fellow, Harvard University, and Former Prime Minister of Finland. The Panel’s report – Innovation Impacts: Measurement and Assessment – catalogues the portfolio of Ontario innovation investments, presents an extensive academic and public policy literature review of leading-edge measurement methodologies, and explores the best international practices in impact assessment. The Panel developed a new conceptual framework that is helpful for understanding innovation impact measurement and assessment at the program level and within the innovation ecosystem respectively. Ultimately, the report’s insights will be a valuable tool to support decision-makers in formulating polices and deciding how to best support innovation in the future.
