The STIP Compass is an initiative of the European Commission and the OECD to collect together in one place quantitative and qualitative data on national trends in science, technology and innovation (STI) policy. It incorporates more than 500 interactive dashboards and provides a sophisticated search tool with smart filtering that facilitates policy discovery.

Connected devices and appliances offer added convenience but also bring potential risks such as data privacy and cybersecurity threats, limitations on interoperability, complex supply chains and liability regimes, and product safety.

More specifically, it lays out a conceptual framework for open science which aims to help different communities to decide on their own priorities within the open science space.
