Lessons from China
  • RD spending has increased at a stunning annual
    rate of almost 19 since 1995 and reached USD 30
    billion in 2005, the sixth largest worldwide
  • Government funding for government research
    institutes and the higher education sector to
    support basic and applied research has driven
  • Role of Higher Education sector in establishing
    academia-industry linkages
  • Role of Business sector as largest RD performer
    in terms of inputs, outputs and patent
  • Government to focus on building up innovation
    capability and creating more IPR on the basis of
    extensive utilization of resources worldwide
  • Technological support and tax incentives to small
    and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
  • Move towards Indigenous Innovation
  • Technology Markets to facilitate Industry-Science
    relationship. These are physical entities set up
    to facilitate technology transactions between
    sellers and buyers of technology and
    technological services

China Indigenous Innovation
  • MLP defined indigenous innovation as enhancing
    original innovation through co-innovation and
    re-innovation based on the assimilation of
    imported technologies
  • Focus on replacing foreign technology in such
    core infrastructure as banking and
    telecommunications systems. That means products
    like integrated circuits, operating software,
    switches and routers, database management and
    encryption systems.
  • Patent rules now make it easier for domestic
    retaliation by Chinese companies which face
    overseas Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)
    lawsuits from foreign competitors incentivise
    filing of patents by Chinese companies
  • Product testing and approval regimes are geared
    to delay the introduction of foreign imports into
    China, and to study foreign designs and
    production processes before the products cross
    the border
  • A refocus on state-industry monopolies and
    controlled competition privileges accompanied the
    enactment of an anti-monopoly law that aims to
    protect domestic companies
  • Preferential Government procurement policies and
    industrial and technology standards serve to
    promote products designed and produced in China

China Indigenous Innovation
  • MLP detailed preferences for domestic goods and
    service providers.
  • A September 2006 tax bureau Circular on
    Preferential Tax Policies for Innovation
    Enterprises offered two year exemption of
    enterprise income tax.
  • The December 2006 Administrative Measures on the
    Accreditation of National Indigenous Innovation
    Products outlined the plans for creating
    national indigenous innovation product catalogues
  • The May 2007 Measures for Administration of
    Government Procurement Budgets for Indigenous
    Innovation Products warned government at all
    levels to develop specific indigenous innovation
    procurement plans or they would lose procurement
  • In May 2007, Measures for Assessment of
    Government Procurement of Indigenous Innovation
    Products lowered government procurement supplier
    qualification standards for companies doing
    indigenous innovation.

China Indigenous Innovation
  • In December 2007, MOF issued Measures for the
    Administration of Government Procurement of
    Imported Products which directed that approval
    by a board of experts is necessary for government
    entities to purchase imported goods. It called
    for favouring foreign suppliers that provide the
    domestic industry with technology transfers and
    training services.
  • A January 2008 Enterprise Income Tax Law
    offered a preferential rate of 15 percent to
    high-tech enterprises designated by the
    government as indigenous innovation companies
    because they developed and owned their
    intellectual property.
  • On November 15, 2009 with the release of the
    public draft of the Circular on Carrying Out the
    Work on Accreditation of National Indigenous
    Innovation Products, known as Circular 618,
    MOST, the NDRC and MOF issued the joint circular
    announcing the creation of a new national-level
    catalogue of products that will receive
    preferential treatment in government procurement.

Lessons from Israel
  • Eco-system for innovation created through
    government policies, private initiative start
    up culture
  • Government push for developing the domestic
    venture capital industry through schemes such as
  • High level of investment in RD
  • Room for failure

5. Innovation Clusters
  • Driving the innovation agenda nationally would
    require strengthening regional capacity for
  • It is proposed to identify 20 innovation clusters
    across the country to develop and support
    innovation, especially inclusive innovation
  • These will enable interconnections between
    intellectual, financial, human and creative
    capital as well as unleash latent potential
  • This requires an Innovation Roadmap that focuses
    federal and state, public and private funding on
    creating and sustaining regional anchors
    throughout the innovation economy

6. Innovation Centres in Universities
  • Industry-academia linkages are critical for a
    thriving innovation eco-system
  • To enable this NInC will identify and facilitate
    the development of 20 innovation hubs at
    Universities in India

7. Collaboration, Training Research
  • Fostering a culture of innovations requires
    mechanisms for collaboration, training and
  • The Councils will bring key stakeholders together
    to analyse problems and recommend solutions
  • The clusters physical and virtual will create
    support systems and infrastructure for innovators
  • The Innovation Fund would provide the right
    resources and incentives
  • The Innovation Portal would provide a platform
    for collaboration, sharing and support by
    creating right synergies
  • These linkages, knowledge exchanges and support
    mechanisms in the system will enable ideas to be
    transformed into innovative outputs

8. Multiple Roadmaps
  • The core ideas, strategies and recommendations
    devised at the national, state and sectoral
    levels will be crystalised in the form of
  • These will provide action points and policy
    inputs to the government for innovation focused
    on inclusive growth at the National level, State
    levels and in each identified domain and sector
  • These roadmaps will be created at the national
    level by the National Innovation Council, at the
    state level by the State councils and in each
    sector by the Sectoral Councils or sub groups
    identified by the Sectoral Councils
