STI Outlook 2002: National S&T Policies


.... Monitoring of science, technology and industry policies

A key aspect of the OECD's work is the monitoring and assessment of policies carried out by Member governments. The information contained on this page concerns OECD's monitoring in the area of science, technology and industry policies. It examines policies in areas that were identified as important to growth in the innovation chapter of the STI Outlook 2000.

The monitoring study is based on a short questionnaire to Member countries. The purpose of this questionnaire was to compile information regarding policies being developed and recently implemented by Member countries, and any possible assessments of these policies.

The questionnaire and the responses of 24 OECD Member countries and 3 observer countries to the OECD Committee for Scientific and Technological Policy are attached (original language only).

A synthesis of these responses, drawing broad policy conclusions and providing an overall assessment of policy action is contained in Chapter 2.
