User-drivenness has established a foothold in innovation policy, challenging the traditional model in which science creates the foundation for innovations and industry commercialises them. However, the ways in which user-drivenness is implemented in policy differ from one country to the other. This article examines the evolving definition of user-driven innovation policy in four countries: Denmark, the Netherlands, the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition to different policy goals and measures, the variety of development paths relates to differences in academic backgrounds. User-driven innovation policies of the examined countries are compared in terms of the degree to which they have been established, and their measures of incorporating a diversity of users. In addition to Denmark, established methods of facilitating diversity are recognisable in British and US policies. User-drivenness also appears to offer solutions to difficult social challenges, such as sustainable consumption or the prioritisation of public services.
