"...we emphasize the relative importance of infrastructures and incentives, but considering the increasingly important role of institutions towards the development of social capital. This is because learning societies will increasingly rely on “distributed knowledge bases”, as a systematically coherent set of knowledge, maintained across an economically and/or socially integrated set of agents and institutions."

Special Issue edited with selected and extended papers from the 3rd International Conference on "Technology Policy and Innovation", Austin, 1999

Guest Editors: Manuel V. Heitor, David V. Gibson, Pedro Conceição, and Giorgio Sirilli
"...while much attention has been devoted to digital technologies, a more fundamental change at the start of the new millennium is the increasing importance of knowledge for economic prosperity and the emergence of a learning society. The ways new competencies, namely in conventional engineering, economics and management, may positively influence the development of a country and/or region depend on the institutional framework, which is currently particularly determined by regulation policies and the process of market liberalization. Again, this calls for the need to promote education and research in technology policy and related challenges are presented and discussed in a context where innovation should be understood as a broad social and economic activity within the framework of the learning society."
