    Routine Jobs, Employment and Technological Innovation in Global Value Chains

    This analysis encompasses 28 OECD countries over the period 2000-2011. The results suggest that comparatively higher skills are associated with higher employment in non-routine (NR) and low routine-intensive (LR) occupations. Also, employment in all types of occupations, both routine and non-routine, shows to positively relate to innovation, as measured by patents.

    Consensus Document on the Biology of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata)

    This publication is a tool for environmental safety assessment of COWPEA varieties. This grain legume is an important staple crop in (sub)tropical regions, in Africa mainly. It can be genetically-engineered for resistance to herbicides, pests or diseases. Biology elements useful to biosafety evaluation are detailed, e.g. taxonomy, cultivation, reproduction, genetics, hybridisation, ecology, common pests and pathogens.

    The Future of Productivity

    This book addresses the rising productivity gap between the global frontier and other firms, and identifies a number of structural impediments constraining business start-ups, knowledge diffusion and resource allocation (such as barriers to up-scaling and relatively high rates of skill mismatch).

    Analysis based on micro and industry-level data highlights the importance of reallocation-friendly policies, including well-functioning product, labour and risk capital markets, efficient judicial systems, bankruptcy laws that do not excessively penalise failure, housing policies that do not unduly restrict labour mobility, and improvements in public funding and organisation of basic research which do not excessively favour applied vs basic research and incumbents vs young firms.

    Open Educational Resources - A Catalyst for Innovation

    Education is the key to economic, social and environmental progress, and governments around the world are looking to improve their education systems. The future of education in the 21st century is not simply about reaching more people, but about improving the quality and diversity of educational opportunities. How to best organise and support teaching and learning requires imagination, creativity and innovation.
    Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research materials that make use of tools such as open licensing to permit their free reuse, continuous improvement and repurposing by others for educational purposes. The OER community has grown considerably over the past 10 years and the impact of OER on educational systems has become a pervasive element of educational policy
    This report aims to highlight state of the art developments and practices in OER, but also to demonstrate how OER can be a tool for innovation in teaching and learning.
