OECD Science, Technology and Industry Outlook 2008

The OECD Science, Technology and Industry Outlook 2008 reviews key trends in science, technology and innovation in OECD countries and a number of major non-member economies including Brazil, Chile, China, Israel, Russia and South Africa. Using the latest available data and indicators, the book examines topics high on the agenda of science and innovation policy makers, including science and innovation performance; trends in national science, technology and innovation policies; and practices to assess the socio-economic impacts of public research. This volume also provides an individual profile of the science and innovation performance of each country in relation to its national context and current policy challenges.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter contains some preliminary findings and lessons learned from the OECD Innovation Microdata project, the first large-scale attempt to exploit harmonised firm-level data from innovation surveys for economic analysis. It uses both microdatabased indicators and more sophisticated techniques, such as explorative data analysis and econometrics, to analyse innovation performance and innovative activities.
