This paper is part of the Irish contribution to the OECD project on 'Monitoring and Implementing Horizontal Innovation Policy' (MONIT). The objective of MONIT is to generate knowledge on how to improve innovation policy governance so as to create a more coherent and comprehensive innovation policy. Central to this is the achievement of greater degrees of horizontal coordination and coherence between the areas of innovation policy and those of other policy domains. The focus of MONIT therefore is on the capabilities of the policy making system that lead to innovation policies that are coherent with non-core innovation policy areas. The present study centres on the linkages and coherence between the policy making processes in the area of innovation policy and those of the Information Society (IS).
