Routine Jobs, Employment and Technological Innovation in Global Value Chains
A timely set of indicators that reflect the level and structure of the efforts undertaken by OECD member countries and selected non-member economies in the field of science and technology.
The news that companies in OECD economies are increasingly bringing manufacturing activities back home has attracted a lot of attention in recent years.
