The OECD Reviews of Innovation Policy offer a comprehensive assessment of the innovation system of individual OECD countries and partner economies, focusing on the role of government. They provide concrete recommendations on how to improve policies that affect innovation performance, including R&D policies. Each review identifies good practices from which other countries can learn.



Innovation performance in Lithuania

This chapter reviews Lithuania’s aggregate innovation performance relative to OECD countries with comparable or advanced levels of innovation system development, similar size and geographical proximity. The chapter starts by examining expenditure across institutional sectors (business, higher education and government) and considers the availability of human resources for innovation. It then reviews indicators of innovation output (drawn from bibliometric, patent, trademark and design data) to highlight qualitative and quantitative characteristics of Lithuania’s innovation system.
