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

For more than a decade, growth of GDP per capita has been among the fastest in the OECD area, and by 2006 Ireland had the fourth highest income level in the OECD area in purchasing power parity terms. With a commitment to science, technology and innovation of EUR 8.2 billion for 2006-13, the government is keen to foster both a strong science base and enterprises able to create knowledge, innovate and exploit knowledge in global markets.
