Thematic briefs

Researchers on the move: The impact of brain circulation

Science and research today

Faced with major economic, societal and environmental challenges at a time when budgets are under pressure, policy makers look for evidence to help them guide efforts to ensure investments in science and research help improve people’s lives. This briefing note aims to provide an overview of recent OECD indicator-based evidence on the state of science and research today. These indicators raise further questions that are the subject of ongoing analytical work within OECD and the broader community engaged in the study of science policy.

Maximizing the benefits of R&D tax incentives for innovation

Rationale, design and cost of R&D tax incentive support

Investments in knowledge based assets such as R&D are key drivers of innovation and economic growth in today’s knowledge economies. Governments throughout the OECD area and beyond provide significant levels of financial support for business to encourage R&D investment. This note presents the latest OECD data and statistics on R&D tax support, providing evidence on the design and cost of R&D tax relief and recent trends in the use of tax incentives across OECD and partner economies.
