New Practices in Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Part II Workshop - June 23 and 24
The OECD Workshop on New Practices in Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Copenhagen in May 2008 highlighted several exciting areas of research and policy synthesis which to be analyzed as inputs into the OECD’s Innovation Strategy.
