The STI e-Outlook and the STI Outlook were prepared under the guidance of the OECD Committee for Scientific and Technological Policy (CSTP) with input from its Working Parties. CSTP delegates contributed significantly through their responses to the biennial STI Outlook policy questionnaire, their comments on the drafts and their guidance on overall development.

 

The STI e-Outlook has been designed by the Country Studies and Outlook Division (CSO) of the OECD DSTI Directorate and jointly developed with the Core Information Systems Division (CIS) of the OECD Information Technology and Network Services (ITN). Eric Anvar (CIS) and Dominique Guellec (CSO) initiated the project. Sandrine Kergroach and Samuel Pinto-Ribeiro served as overall co-ordinators.

The science and innovation policy database is being implemented by the CSO Division: Julien Chicot, Sandrine Kergroach, Inmaculada Perianez-Forte, Chiara Petroli and Tomomi Watanabe. Michael Keenan provides close cooperation and is ensuring consistency with the forthcoming OECD Innovation Policy Platform. Development and integration into the corporate Qualitative Data Dissemination application (QDD) has been done by the CIS Division: Karine Lepron, Sebastien Piton and Bruno Urban.

Statistical input has been prepared by Julien Chicot and Lihan Wei of the CSO Division. Susan Cartwright, Jens Dons and Samuel Pinto-Ribeiro of the CIS Division provided support for data and metadata integration into the OECD data portal (OECD.Stat).

Dynamic charts and animations have been developed by Yann Bicrel, Mehdi Hamri and Henri Kayali of the Infocube© company.

Development and integration into the web content management system, TerminalFour (T4), has been managed by the CIS Division: Wissam Boulos, Chris Daniel, Douglas Paterson and Nicolas Vahlas.
