Public implementation of new technologies such as digital technology or clean technology is a fundamental driver of not only the national income and employment but also the enhanced well-being in a sustainable society. To help understand the effective policies toward the public implementation of such technologies, we quantitatively analyze the innovation process from a macroeconomic viewpoint. Our research project highlights the production of knowledge such as patents and scientific articles in a macroeconomic model with industrial and regional heterogeneities.
