[Research and Innovation policy The Japanese Experiment]

The report:
Innovation has been for many years the magic wand of advanced industrial societies. Today
the present systemic crisis is spreading disenchantment with innovation expressed in the
notions of “secular stagnation” and “long-term recession”. The goal of this research is to deconstruct innovation, criticize its presuppositions in order to reconstruct its concept. Innovation cannot be reduced to technology and cannot be separated from its social, political, economic and cultural contexts. This explains why today innovation is policy, all inclusive research and innovation policies. These policies are huge institutional constructions resulting from negotiations associating government, the administration, universities and business communities. Still they remain conceptual constructions, models and theories. Based on the case of Japan and on the present state of science and technology studies, this research analyzes why and how the role of “society” has been increasing in research and innovation policies, in Japan, at the level of the EU, in Germany, Switzerland or Scandinavian nations. What is called “ civil society” or simply “society” is becoming a full collective actor and power, with similar status that government, universities and the economy. This is a major evolution. The problem is that this evolution exceeds established conceptions of “society “ and political institutions.
