OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2009

At a time when world economy is in the midst of the most severe economic downturn since the Great Depression, the OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2009 provides the statistical information necessary to define a response to the global challenges accompanying the downturn.

This edition of the  Scoreboard  illustrates and analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa). Indicators are organised around five issues: responding to the economic crisis, targeting new growth areas, competing in the world economy, connecting to global research, and investing in the knowledge economy. The Scoreboard also includes StatLinks, "clickable" access to the underlying data in Excel® spreadsheets.

Hide / Show Abstract

Recent advances in the life sciences are proving the prediction that this will be the century of biotechnology. In two to three decades, new treatments and drugs, genetically modified foods, biologically controlled production processes, new materials, biologically based computing and many other applications may well be part of our everyday lives, improving health, the environment, and industrial, agricultural and energy production.
