Intensified global competition has forced companies to innovate and develop commercially viable products and services faster. This report brings together the empirical evidence on the internationalisation of business research and development.
This database presents patent data linked to regions according to the addresses of the applicants and inventors. The data have been regionalised at a very detailed level so that more than 2000 regions are covered across OECD countries.
OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials has launched a “sponsorship programme” in which countries will share the testing of specific nanomaterials (MNs) at its 3rd meeting (November 2008). Much valuable information on the safety of MNs can be derived by testing a representative set for human health and environmental safety. In launching this “sponsorship programme” the Working Party agreed a priority list of MNs for
