Research Approach



CSTI’s applied research activities are distinguished, in particular, by efforts to more carefully characterize the technologies, application systems and industrial structures involved in the journey from research to economic wealth; and by efforts to ensure that research outputs are directly relevant to the evidence needs of those government agencies supporting the research & innovation base. 


Other emphases in CSTI’s research agenda and approach include:


  • A focus on radically new emerging technologies from the public science & engineering research base
  • Comparative analysis of national industrial and innovation systems
  • Focus on translational and intermediate innovation system components
  • Characterisation of innovation system functions, value capture, dynamics
  • Highlight implications for the design, implementation and alignment of government industrial strategy, innovation policies, programmes and practices
  • Alignment of STI policies with governmental industrial strategies
