Abstract: Innovation support policies should take into consideration all particular qualities of national innovation system in the country, not being one-size-fits-all, in this case, the analysis of strengths and weaknesses of national innovation system is extremely important. Most valuable in this context are policies aiming to improve co-operation between the enterprises and institutions in the innovation system and to increase the innovative capacity of enterprises, in particular their ability to identify and absorb new technologies. Until now, little analysis on the Latvian innovation system was made. The study aims to analyze the Latvian national innovation system and to discuss aspects of properly-functioning Latvian national innovation system. This research allows the policy-makers to investigate the mismatch between policies and problems and to identify policy gaps.
