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.
