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.

Innovation today

New indicators on trademarks point to large numbers of incremental and marketing innovations and suggest that countries perform both technological and non-R&D-based innovation. Countries with a large manufacturing sector or an ICT specialisation have a greater propensity to patent than to “trademark”. Countries with a large services sector tend to engage more in trademark protection. Countries in the process of catching-up have a lower propensity to innovate or to seek protection for their innovations (via patents or trademarks) than OECD countries.
