OECD case study of Norway’s digital science and innovation policy and governance landscape
This report describes Norway’s landscape for Digital Science and Innovation Policy
(DSIP) - the overarching framework through which governments make intensive use of
digital technologies and data resources to support the formulation, delivery and administration
of STI policy. The report describes how Norway’s DSIP landscape is shaped by its broader
digital government framework and agenda, introduces the main actors in the DSIP system
and discusses their main features in relation to their key objectives and the generic
purposes of DSIP approaches. Special attention is paid to the role of STI statistics.
It concludes by drawing out key findings and potential implications to help the Norwegian
government identify opportunities that promote the system’s further development in
line with its strategic objectives. This study also provides an indication of the
potential opportunities and challenges that other countries might face when developing,
implementing and maintaining digital systems for STI policy and administration.
