image of OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2011

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.

For more information about the OECD STI Scoreboard, see www.oecd.org/sti/scoreboard.

Policy environment

Entry and growth of new firms is important, as is their adaptability to changes in the economy and their ability to exit when necessary. New enterprises drive a large number of obsolete firms out of the market and often do not survive very long themselves. A policy environment that fosters the start-up and growth of new firms is essential for innovation to flourish.
