This course provides an introduction to the analysis of innovation processes, and their economic and policy determinants and implications. Participants will be provided with the basic notions of innovation studies. In parallel, a focus on communication strategies and practices commonly adopted by organizations and institutions involved in the making of the innovation will be developed.
