Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators in a Changing World: Responding to Policy Needs

books by Anthony Arundel, A. Colecchia & Fred Gault (Eds)

Publisher: OECD, Paris

As part of engaging a wider community of policy users and indicator developers, Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators in a Changing World: Responding to Policy Needs is a selection of the papers discussed at the OECD Blue Sky II Forum (Ottawa, 25-27 September 2006). Policy needs, measurement issues, and some of the challenges in describing cross-cutting and emerging topics in science, technology and innovation (STI) are presented; ideas to exploit existing data and develop new frameworks of measurement are shared. The intent of the debate is to guide future development of STI indicators at the OECD and beyond.
