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

Economic growth has picked up in recent years, but the income gap with other OECD countries remains large. As a catching-up and open economy, Turkey’s main economic sectors – agriculture, textiles and clothing, machinery, steel, lumber, paper, and transport equipment – are under pressure from lower-wage competitors vying for market share. Raising productivity and innovation in these sectors will be crucial for maintaining competitiveness and attracting the foreign direct investment (FDI) needed to continue the modernisation process.
