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 these global challenges.

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

Nanotechnology – the science of the very small – is likely to have a major economic and social impact in the years ahead. It may help further miniaturise information technology devices, resolve fundamental questions related to the immune system, accelerate advances in genomics and contribute to the generation of renewable energy.
