Innovation drives long-term economic growth. This book examines the role of innovation in developing countries, with a focus on Africa.
This report is on how to support governments and industry in building a sustainable bio-based economy. The OECD Task Force on Industrial Biotechnology is considering the development of a set of recommendations in the area of Environmental and Economic Sustainability.
Well-timed and targeted innovation boosts productivity, increases economic growth and helps solve societal problems. But how can governments encourage more people to innovate more of the time? And how can government itself be more innovative?
This compendium is a major step towards evidence-based innovation policy making. It complements traditional “positioning”-type indicators with ones that show how innovation is, or could be, linked to policy.
Publication of the Report of the Workshop on Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials in a Regulatory Context
The current document presents the information obtained from the WPMN Questionnaire on regulatory Regimes for Manufactured Nanomaterials issued July 28, 2008.
This July 2009 symposium brought together the different communities – scientific, engineering, policy, public and legal – involved in synthetic biology and explored the opportunities and challenges posed by this emerging field.
This joint project builds on work undertaken by two separate OECD WPMN activities, former Project one (Development of an OECD database on Human Health and Environmental Safety Research) and former Project two (EHS Research strategies on Manufactured Nanomaterials).
This document is the report of the workshop held on 16-18 September 2009 in Washington D.C., United States, co-hosted by Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) and Society for Risk Analysis (SRA).
This is intended to provide delegations and other stakeholders with a “snapshot” of information on activities related to manufactured nanomaterials, as well as other activities on nanotechnologies, at the national and international level.
