This tenth edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard builds on the OECD’s 50 years of indicator development to present major world trends in knowledge and innovation. It analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa) and includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest.

Broader innovation

Firms follow various innovation strategies and these are not always based on R&D. Collaboration is part of innovation processes whether firms perform R&D or not. In all countries R&D-active firms tend to collaborate more frequently on innovation (usually twice as much) than non- R&D-active firms. In Chile and Korea, R&D status does not seem to affect collaboration on innovation. In the United Kingdom, collaboration is embedded in innovation processes and over 50% of non-R&D-active firms engage in it. Policies that stimulate collaboration and network initiatives might affect the entire spectrum of innovative firms.
