Abstract Abstract In recent years, In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and genetic engineering (GE) have developed substantially, raising hopes but also concerns. Relying on a panel of experts, this article explores expected scenarios related to the evolution of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), thus helping to ascertain which expectations might materialize over the next twenty years. We use the Delphi method, whereby forecasts are extracted from a surv...

Purpose The market of assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) is rapidly evolving, raising growing ethical and social dilemmas. This paper compares the regulatory responses to technological and market developments in Israel and Spain, both intensive users of ART. We identify strengths and deficiencies in the regulation of ART in these two countries.
The purpose of this study is to explore the potential for increasing the productivity of small firms from emerging countries by enhancing their management practices.,The link between four types of management practices and labor productivity at the firm level is tested through a sample of 13,566 small firms from 15 emerging countries. Subsequently, the policy options available to upgrade management practices in such firms are analyzed through a systematic review of recent experiences in 12 emergi...

This article explores new mechanisms through which countries can improve their connection with global innovation networks, beyond the traditional mechanisms to absorb foreign technology such as international trade and foreign direct investment. Through the case study of Chile, we discuss new opportunities and challenges associated with the development of public policies specifically designed to attract foreign entrepreneurs and international universities. This study contributes to expanding the ...

R&D related foreign direct investments represent a powerful mechanism for cross-border knowledge sharing that can stimulate the process of technological catch-up. However, low-income countries and smaller middle-income countries remain largely excluded from this kind of global flows of knowledge. In this chapter, we discuss the motivations and implications of this type of FDI for low and middle income countries, building on a critical review of the existing literature and analyse the trajectory ...

During the last two decades, a growing number of universities, mainly from developed countries, have established branch campuses in developing countries. From the developing country perspective, attracting foreign universities can help mitigate financial constraints and capacity shortages that impair the state’s ability to provide greater access to higher education, while also improving teaching and research in general. However, foreign universities may also be detrimental if they crowd-out thei...

Countries deploy a variety of financial, regulatory and soft policy instruments to promote science-industry knowledge exchange. While these instruments are often discussed in isolation, they are implemented collectively and may reinforce and complement but also weaken or even negatively affect each other and add excessive complexity. This paper develops a conceptual framework to map policy instruments for knowledge exchange and assess the interactions between them. The framework also considers h...

Policies to boost the impact of public research can be classified into three broad categories. Firstly, policy initiatives promoting research excellence encourage frontier research by providing large-scale, long-term competitive funding to selected research centres. Secondly, policies supporting knowledge transfer aim at commercialising the results of public research through patent licensing, spin-off companies, and other channels. Thirdly, policies promoting science-industry co-creation focus o...
