    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; conceptual history; Quentin Skinner; innovation system concept; innovation thinking; VINNOVA; OECD; Sweden; research policy; research funding reform; Research 2000; sectoral research; university autonomy; industrial policy; industrial crisis; Economic history; Ekonomisk historia;

    Abstract : In 2001 Sweden founded the government agency of VINNOVA, named after the OECD-endorsed innovation system concept. Criticising the common assumption that countries are passive and uncritical recipients of the approaches promoted by the OECD, this dissertation tries to show that Swedish actors were in fact very active and strategic as they contributed to the national adoption of the concept.
