Central Innovation Manual on Excellent Econometric Impact Analyses of Innovation Policy (CIM)
A tool for conducting econometric evaluations of innovation policy
CIM focuses on how to set up a framework for a “standard” impact assessment procedure that makes it possible to conduct excellent impact assessments of research, innovation and industrial policy and compare the impacts of different policies. Hence, CIM is not an attempt to establish practical guidance on a broader number of methods on how to evaluate the wider impact of research, innovation and industrial policy.
The target group for the CIM are programme owners in the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher education and other ministries and government agencies seeking better information on the best methods for analysing the impacts of innovation and industrial policy, as well as external expert stakeholders and evaluation professionals (from organisations, regions, knowledge institutions, etc.) interested in following and entering a dialogue with the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher education on how to document innovation policy effects.
