One of many policy recommendations included in the report is the promotion of collaboration between regional governments in the field of innovation. ‘One of the main cooperation challenges,’ explain the authors of the document, ‘is that public money stops at the regional or national administrative border.’ National authorities can easily either ‘help’ or ‘hinder cross-border collaboration for innovation,’ depending on the policies promoted at regional level, states the report.

The concept of a holistic innovation policy is defined in this article, with discussions of what it is, why it is relevant, and how it can be implemented to enhance product innovation. It is shown that the innovation systems approach has diffused rapidly during the latest decades and has completely replaced the linear view in the field of innovation research. The majority of European countries are striving in the direction of developing a more holistic innovation policy. However, it is concluded that the innovation policies in European countries are still dominantly linear despite the fact that holistic policy seems to be the driving vision. Innovation policy is behindhand. Why innovation policy is still linear is also preliminarily discussed. Policymakers attending conferences on innovation are practically always in favor of holistic (systemic, broad-based, comprehensive, etc) innovation policies, have abandoned the linear view by learning from innovation research. The division between “linear” and “holistic” seems to be located within the community where innovation policies are designed and implemented, a community composed of policymakers (administrators/bureaucrats) and elected politicians.

This reflects the growing interest in the regional studies community – policy, researchers and practice – in regional innovation activities, processes and policies in the last decade. If it was radical for the RSA 2005 conference in Aalborg to claim that the future of the European Structural Funds was in supporting innovation not just infrastructure, by 2014, that vision has become reality with the Commission’s two main policy areas of Research and Cohesion dominated to the point of obsessiveness by innovation activities. Two papers recently published in RSRS address this topic.
