Abstract

The Hungarian science, technology and innovation (STI) policy governance structure has been reorganised at least once by every government since the 1990s, including the highest level policy-making bodies. Moreover, the latter ones have only worked intermittently: in certain periods had been ‘dormant’ for years. Hence, policies affecting the RTDI processes – notably education, STI, macroeconomic, industrial, investment promotion and regional development policies – could not possibly be designed and implemented in a strategic, coherent and integrated framework. The implementing agencies are also frequently reorganised. These permanent changes in governance structures prevent organisational learning of policy design and implementation bodies, and this lack of stability also hampers the efficient functioning of these bodies.
