France needs real-world strategy for innovation

France must develop a national innovation strategy to ensure that spending on R&D delivers economic growth, according to a report commissioned by the government to follow up its recently published competitiveness plan.

The strategy should cover industrial, education and research policy and should be regularly evaluated to assess how effectively it is producing economic returns.

The report, published on 4 April, was written by Jean-Luc Beylat, president of R&D firm Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs France, and Pierre Tambourin, director of the Genopole biotechnology hub in Essone. It builds on the competitiveness plan published by the government in November.
