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.

Executive Summary

Innovation is a major source of economic performance and social welfare. It directly affects productivity, job creation and citizens’ well-being and helps to address global challenges such as the economic crisis, health and the environment. As the role of innovation has taken on greater prominence and its characteristics have evolved, statistical information is necessary to measure these global challenges and to identify directions for responding to them.
