(John) Key timing for Innovation Council?
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 16 Dec. 2010 ) New Zealand's innovation system is like a large industrial plant according to the New Zealand Institute.
"Where each department performs reasonably well given the resources and information available, and manages hand-offs to adjacent departments," it says in a recent internationalisation strategy called 'Plugging the gaps'.
"However the plant as a whole is underperforming because there are bottlenecks, missing functions and missed opportunities for coordination."
