Public policy-making is, by definition, the result of network interaction. And in our complex interactive world which Ralf Dahrendorf typified as ‘the Age of Schumpeter, the Age of Innovation’, this notion of policy networks in support of innovation has taken on renewed, intensified, meaning. After all, as most governments understand, innovation is intimately related with economic growth, productivity, competition and improved standards ofliving. (OECD, 2001c)
