This book is the result of a workshop of the "Six-Countries-Programme" – the international network of political decision makers, scientists, industrialists and practitioners in innovation. It gathers papers from experts for sustainbale development and those for innovation and innovation policy to bridge the gap between these two communities and to develop mutual understanding. It shows the still very open character of the discussion about the links between innovation and sustainable development and also displays the gaps, deficiencies and necessities for completion not only in scientific analysis but also in political actions. Yet it makes clear how the concept of sustainable development can serve as guiding principle for future innovation policies and that it also offers business opportunities.
