The OECD STI Outlook 2012 presents, in a series of country profiles, the individual science, technology and innovation (STI) performance of OECD countries and some non-OECD countries, their national context and current major policy issues. Profiles describe national STI priorities and recent STI policy developments in each country, on the basis of the responses provided by countries to the STI Outlook policy questionnaires 2010 and 2012, as well as various additional OECD and non-OECD sources (including the EC-ERAWATCH database). Profiles describe also national innovation systems and their performance in different areas, using a standard set of indicators developed by the OECD for policy analysis. The reviews of STI indicators and STI trends carried out for the OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard are a key reference too.
