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.

Annex 3.A1

The first graph for each country – the radar graph – illustrates the position of the country against the OECD average performance on a set of common indicators. Data for non-OECD countries are not included in the average. The indicators were selected on the basis of policy relevance, as well as availability of quality data for a majority of countries, in order to provide a broad snapshot of science and innovation performance. They focus on research and innovation inputs, scientific and innovation outputs, linkages and networks, including international linkages, and human resources.
