The Impact of Public Policy on Innovation: A Simulation Project for Research and Teaching


  • Alan B. Eisner


This project represents the co-development of a research and teaching simulation software system. The theoretical model is introduced and developed to answer research questions important to the scholarly pursuits of the author while at the same time the conversion of scholarly work into a viable teaching and learning platform is explored. This project unpacks the factors that affect government policies that attempt to encourage innovation through collaboration among industry participants. By understanding more about the impact of industry and environmental factors both government and industry members can better understand the most beneficial industrial collaboration policies to pursue.
