This thesis explores the unintended consequences of sectoral regulation for the innovation process by combining insights from innovation studies, economics and political science. Regulation is viewed as an enabling institution with a momentum of its own that evolves in accordance to other socially embedded processes among which we focus on innovation. The relationship between the two processes is not considered as unidirectional; rather, we view regulation and innovation as two processes that co-evolve.
