This review present taxonomy of innovation policy literature through a) a literature review of a number of selected references (over 220), and b) grouping of these references into specific groups based on their theoretical /conceptual and empirical (practitioners) focus. We show that there is not a coherent paradigm (research agenda) in innovation policy area but there is a peaceful co-existence of several often incompatible perspectives (paradigms). We outline newly emerging areas of innovation policy analysis (complementarities in growth, systems and policies; interactions between innovation systems and globalization; return of the State into the analysis of innovation policy, and development of concept of broad (implicit) innovation policy).
