This policy paper aims to assist policy makers, as they develop the Pakistan Innovation
Policy, with an independent assessment of where Pakistan stands now, an international
perspective on policy priorities, a review of policy options and some implementation and
institutional perspectives. The paper begins with a review of the key lessons of international
experience together with a study of key international benchmarks. It takes a look at the
ecosystem approach which maps the effectiveness of all the various players in innovation and
also reviews progress against 12 “triple helix” critical success factors.1 The possible policy
options are then enumerated and evaluated for relevance. Finally, some perspectives are
provided on how to move the innovation agenda forward.
