The main objective of the study is to organise an exchange of good practice in the public promotion of the deployment of Key Enabling Technologies (KETs). Policy learning among EU Member States is stimulated by reviewing existing policy practices both in EU and non-EU countries, organising expert workshops and formulating policy recommendations that could serve as a toolkit for policy makers. ZEW’s part in this project is primarily concerned with a quantitative analysis of country performance in the development and deployment of KETs based on patent and trade data.
