Abstract

The paper offers a taxonomy of the technology platforms (TPs) to help assess a platform’s risk level. TPs are seen as a valuable policy instrument that assists a multi-stakeholder formulation and implementation of long-term R&D programs in specific technology areas at economy or industry level. The TPs analysis and the taxonomy are based on the industrial economic perspective and contribute to defining and implementing technology platforms above the company level. In practical terms the results of the study may be used by policy-makers in designing the R&D support measures.

Moreover, the paper clarifies the role of TPs in the science, technology and innovation policy mix. The authors trace the evolution of the ‘technology platform’ concept from an instrument used by companies for R&D and innovation management towards a policy instrument used for technology and economic development at national and international levels. The authors propose a theoretical approach to TPs as a science, technology and innovation policy concept. Furthermore the paper offers a case-study of Russia’s newly established Technology Platforms.

Keywords: technology platform, science and technology policy, innovation policy, regional development, economic development, public private partnerships
