Knowledge and Innovation
In the coming years, CPB intends to make substantial contributions to policy-relevant economic analyses of the various fields within the knowledge chain. This chain runs from pre-school education, to primary, secondary, vocational and higher education and to training courses people attend throughout their careers. Education also contributes to the creation of human capital. Knowledge is essential for conducting scientific research, and scientific knowledge in turn flows back into education. And, ultimately, science, innovation and the creation of human capital are the drivers of general welfare.
