The objective of the Peer Review of Denmark’s Research and Innovation (R&I) System is twofold: to further elevate Denmark’s performance by outlining an overarching innovation strategy, and support stakeholders working effectively and in close cooperation towards common overall objectives.
The expert panel assed how Denmark can best organise its efforts on knowledge-based innovation, based on international best practices, and provided concrete recommendations on how to further develop Danish public policy to this end.
Denmark is one of the few countries in the EU that have reached Europe’s 2020 target for R&D intensity of 3% of GDP, and the European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS) ranks Denmark as an Innovation Leader. However, its innovation performance varies across different fields and parameters. The Danish Minister of Higher Education and Science had asked the PSF panel to focus on "how to build the most effective bridges between research-based knowledge building and the application of this knowledge in business and society".
