A key aspect of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry Outlook is the review of significant developments in science, technology and innovation policies in member countries. This page contains links to responses prepared by 24 member countries and 3 observers (China, Russia and South Africa) to the OECD Committee for Scientific and Technological Policy to a questionnaire inquiring about recent policy changes in seven areas of growing importance:
General frameworks for STI policy
Public sector research
Government support to business R&D and innovation
Collaboration and networking among innovating organisations
Human resources for science and technology
Innovation in the service sector
Evaluation of innovation policy.
The responses are presented in their original language only (most in English; in French for Belgium and France). Chapter 2 of the STI Outlook 2004 presents an integrative synthesis of the main trends identified in the responses.
