The fully revamped and re-titled OECD Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook is a biennial publication that aims to inform policy makers and analysts on recent and future changes in global science, technology and innovation (STI) patterns and their potential implications on and for national and international STI policies. Based on the most recent data available, the report provides comparative analysis of new policies and instruments being used in OECD countries and a number of major emerging economies (including Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation and South Africa) to boost the contribution of science and innovation to growth and to global and social challenges. In this edition, detailed country and policy profiles are available on line.

Methodological annex to the 2016 OECD STI Outlook country profiles

The OECD Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook reviews key global trends in science, technology and innovation (STI) and related policies and offers insights on recent national STI policy developments in OECD countries and key emerging economies, including Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, India, Indonesia and the Russian Federation (BRIICS). In particular, the country profiles of the OECD STI Outlook (Chapter 12) present the main features, strengths and weaknesses of national STI systems and major recent changes in national STI policy along a standardised and cross-country comparable structure. This annex describes the conceptual background used to design these profiles, as well as indicators, sources and benchmarking methodology.
