The Working Group on Innovation and Technology Policy (TIP) was established by the OECD Committee for Scientific and Technological Policy ( CSTP ) in March 1993. The TIP is made up of government officials responsible for science, technology and innovation and meets twice a year once in June and in December.
The mandate of the TIP is to conduct analytical research on the links between innovation and growth, including productivity and job creation, and to evaluate national science and technology support systems in order to facilitate benchmarking and the identification of best practice policies. The TIP reports on its work and submits policy recommendations to its governing Committee, the CSTP, which acts as a forum for Member countries to exchange information and best practices in order to improve S&T policy making at the national level.
