The OECD and the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Finance jointly organised a symposium on the topic "International Comparison of the Budget Cycle in Research and Development and Innovation Policies" in Madrid, 3-4 July 2008. The meeting was chaired by Mr Barry Anderson, Head of the Budgeting and Public Expenditures Division (BUD) of the Public Governance and Territorial Development Directorate, OECD.

The primary objective of the symposium was to provide systematic comparisons for a limited number of OECD countries of the usefulness of research and development and innovation evaluation systems for resource allocation purposes.
