Research and innovation (R&I) have an important role in driving economic growth. In Sweden, Vinnova has a particular role to play in stimulating sustainable growth. The present economic recession is a blow to worldwide economic growth and most governments are taking action to restore the stability of the financial system and stimulate growth. It is of obvious interest to Vinnova to understand the national approaches taken to stimulate growth through research and innovation. We have therefore initiated studies in a number of countries which are being summarised in this report.

In an introductory section, we characterise in general terms how research and innovation will impact the sustainable recovery from the crisis.
