The paper summarizes a study funded by STEPI; outcomes are based on an expert Delphi survey and interviews. “STI Policy Review” is a multidisciplinary journal that shares high-quality, empirical and practical knowledge on science and technology policy in order to further a robust global community of STI policy researchers, policy makers and practitioners.
