Research, Development and Innovation: Contextual Analysis. Part Three.
Radnor, Michael; And Others
Part 3 of a three-part volume for research and development systems researchers, this report shows how the contextual analytical approach presented in Part 1 may be used to analyze specific research, development, and innovation (RD & I) issues. Chapter 8 (the first chapter of this part) focuses on the institutional bases of RD & I systems with particular attention being given to how the RD & I functions (presented and explained in Part 1) are clustered together within and among the institutions of RD & I systems. Chapter 9 focuses on the issue of entrepreneurship as it relates to the historical and current state of development of RD & I systems. Chapter 10 discusses issues relevant to implementation and utilization, including the structural attributes of user organizations. Chapter 11 illustrates the use of the contextual analysis framework for policy analysis. Brief summaries are given of policy analyses provided to the National Institute of Education. Chapter 12 reviews the contextual analysis framework. (Author/JM)
