The OECD Innovation Strategy
Getting a Head Start on Tomorrow
Well-timed and targeted innovation boosts productivity, increases economic growth
and helps solve societal problems. But how can governments encourage more people to
innovate more of the time? And how can government itself be more innovative?
The OECD Innovation Strategy provides a set of principles for fostering innovation
in people (workers and consumers), in firms and in government. It takes an in-depth
look at the scope of innovation and how it is changing, as well as where and how it
is occurring. The result is the formulation of far-reaching policies for innovation
using recent research and data.
"a thoughtful new report on how governments can do better at spurring and measuring
innovation." The Economist
