'This book is original in its perspective as well as in its coverage of issues. The author has a good grip both on the political and economic aspects of innovation policy, which makes it possible for her to draw out the crucial dilemmas for European policymakers, as well as the difficulties in finding easy solutions to these dilemmas. She covers different fields that are normally not treated in one common context such as knowledge creation, intellectual property rights, the information society, standard setting and risk assessment. The truly interdisciplinary approach and the broad coverage make this volume quite unique.'
