Various interpretations of the nature of evolutionary economics and its implications have resulted in different and somewhat contradictory understanding about the subject. Different interpretations of evolutionary economics have implications for science and technology policy also. In order to extracting qualitative content and conceptualization of evolutionary approach in science and technology policy, thematic design and analysis strategy have been used in this paper. Coding, concept extracting and designing resulted in a 2-layer model in this research. In this first layer, the nature of evolutionary economics, and in the second layer its policy implications in science and technology sector have been used. Finally, on the basis of this thematic analysis, a map of science and technology policy rationales have developed. This map is not flat and has some levels to show important concepts. Represented macro design of this paper, not only represents a demarcation criteria about different interpretation of evolutionary economic, but also shows foundations and original rationales of evolutionary science and technology policy and simplifies collective and individual policies.
