The latest OECD Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook 2023 says that recent measures by China, the European Union and the United States to reduce international technology dependencies could lead to a weakening of science, technology and innovation activities at a time when global challenges, more than ever, require international co-operation.
Thanks to robust skills and investment in R&D, Korea is leading in the development of frontier technologies with potential to transform production processes, stimulate the entry of new firms, and the launch of ground-breaking products and applications, according to a new OECD report.
Most OECD governments use tax incentives to encourage businesses to invest in research and development (R&D) to boost innovation and drive economic growth. Others, like China, India and South Africa, are doing the same. But reforming these incentives would give countries a better return on their investment and support young innovative firms that play a crucial role in job creation, according to a new OECD report.
The OECD has recommended its Member Countries apply existing international and national chemical regulatory frameworks to manage the risks associated with manufactured nanomaterials.
This document provides information on current/planned activities related to the safety of manufactured nanomaterials in OECD member and non-member countries that attended at the 7th meeting of OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (Paris France, 7-9 July 2010).
Publication of the Report of the Workshop on Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials in a Regulatory Context
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).
Following the recommendation from the ICCM2 (SAICM), OECD and UNITAR agreed to hold a series of “IOMC/OECD/UNITAR Awareness-Raising Workshops for Developing and Transition Countries on Nanotechnology /Manufactured Nanomaterials” in conjunction with SAICM regional meetings during 2009/2010
This international conference on "Globalisation and Open Innovation" examined trends in globalisation and "open" models for innovation in firms as well as implications for policy making.

Nations and private companies, spurred by the need to accelerate innovation, are shaking up their approach to research and development. That's one of the conclusions in the OECD's 2002 Science, Technology and Industry Outlook.
