OECD Science, Technology and Industry Working Papers

The OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) leads OECD research on the contribution of science, technology and industry to well-being and economic growth. STI Working Papers cover a broad range of topics including definition and measurement of science and technology indicators, global value chains, and research on policies to promote innovation. These technical or analytical working papers are prepared by staff or outside consultants to share early insights and elicit feedback.


Biotechnology Statistics in OECD Member Countries

An Inventory

This document reflects recent efforts made by the OECD to obtain an accurate assessment of the current state of biotechnology statistics in OECD Member and Observer countries. The authors are grateful to Statistics Canada for the funding that made this project possible.

The inventory was prepared by Brigitte van Beuzekom of the OECD’s Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry, and benefited from contributions from Bill Pattinson of the OECD Secretariat and delegates involved in the OECD Ad hoc Meeting on Biotechnology Statistics. This version of the inventory is provisional and subject to revisions; it is also available on Internet at http://www.oecd.org/s_t/biotech/stats/biotech_inventory.htm. Revisions will be posted on the Internet as they become available. Comments are welcome and should be sent by e-mail to Brigitte van Beuzekom [e-mail: [email protected]] ...
