The EU's expanding technology policy role can be justified by both competitive challenges and advantages which are more or less shared by all its member states. However, the politics of European technology policy remain lively and contentious. They reflect wider debates about the proper role of the EU in European political and economic life. This important book provides an authoritative yet accessible assessment of the development, size and impact of European technology policies, and a critique of their current direction.

Review:

...thorough study of an important subject.' - Long Range Planning'...an authoritative yet accessible assessment of the development, size and impact of European technology policies and a critique of their current direction...The authors provide a useful handbook for those new to studying the subject, but there is also much of interest to those who are looking for deeper insights and analysis into European technology policy and European integration as a whole.' - European Access

'An admirable example of the best kind of interdisciplinary collaboration, bringing together a political scientist and an economist who is also a practising politician. The outcome is a work of clarity and rigour. It should be read by all students and teachers of European integration. Europe's future would be well served if it were widely read by industrialists, officials, MPs and MEPs and, most especially, national ministers and the incoming European Commissioners.' - Anne Stevens, Journal of Common Market Studies

'A well-informed, detailed and lucid analysis...[which] addresses in a masterly way the complex dilemmas and questions that are still present in the EU technology policy...[and] successfully bridges the disciplines of political science and economics...' - Susana Borrás, Journal of European Public Policy
