ZEF theme: Science Policy

Science Policy

Science policy and innovation are central to development. National science policy, as well as international science policy for global public goods, are both of high importance and increasingly linked. ZEF research focuses on science policy in an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together economics, political, social and natural science. The main questions that science policy research at ZEF aims to answer are: What science policy enhances sustainable development and economic growth in emerging economies at different stages of development and how can science investors enhance their impact?
