ABSTRACT
This study argues that Ireland's recent strong economic performance is the outcome of its National Systems of Technological Innovation (NSTI). Ireland's NSTI has resulted in a significant flow of inward FDI in technology intensive industries. The institutions that are the building blocks of the country's NSTI are: R&D infrastructures, labor skills, educational system, and telecommunication infrastructure. As discussed in the paper, the institutions of the Irish NSTI are the outcome of proactive economic strategies implemented by the Irish government.
