Early Grant Information for NGOs

The characteristics of LAIS allow addressing the validity of previous results of single-country studies in different contexts, improving our understanding of the relevance of framework conditions, and exploring under-researched aspects of innovation in firms. Among these topics, some policy-relevant questions can be addressed by generating new knowledge that can improve the efficiency of public support to innovation and uncover innovation activities that governments should support. This call aims to sponsor quantitative research that addresses research questions relevant to innovation policy using the LAIS dataset.
