In the Europe–2020 strategy European Union puts forward three mutually reinforcing priorities smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The focus of this paper is to investigate what we know about implementing innovation and entrepreneurship policy programmes. How could they be conducted to enhance growth and innovation in a long-term perspective? We address a particular interest to design and impact issues of such programmes. The empirical part of the research project is based on theoretically derived knowledge and illustrative case studies of management of innovation programmes. Secondary data emanating from research reporting, ex post programme evaluation and interviews of programme managers.
