PhD defence: Mart Laatsit

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Mart Laatsit has submitted his thesis entitled: Policy learning in innovation policy. A comparative analysis of European Union member states

Monday, January 21, 2019 - 13:00 to 15:00

I provide a comparative perspective across European Union (EU) member states on how they use these sources for policy learning. The findings of this thesis show that countries in the EU are very different in the extent and sophistication of how they make use of the two types of sources for policy learning. At the same time, it is remarkable that countries that are more advanced in using one type of source are also better at using the other type
