Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators in a Changing World

Responding to Policy Needs

image of Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators in a Changing World

As the world interconnects, science, technology and innovation policies cannot be seen as standing alone. There is a growing interest from central banks and ministries of finance in improving the understanding of how science, technology and innovation create value in the form of increased productivity and profits, and contribute to the valuation of enterprises, and ultimately stimulate the growth and competitiveness of economies. This conference proceedings of the OECD Blue Sky II Forum describes some of the policy needs, measurement issues, and challenges in describing cross-cutting and emerging topics in science, technology and innovation (STI). It also presents ideas to exploit existing data and develop new frameworks of measurement in order to guide future development of STI indicators at the OECD and beyond.

Introduction

The second OECD Blue Sky Forum took place in Ottawa in September 2006 to examine science, technology and innovation (STI) indicators for use in policy in the 21st century. The context for indicator development, and use, had changed considerably from the first Blue Sky Forum in Paris in June 1996 and this book looks at those changes and how they are influencing indicator development.
