The UNU-MERIT course on the Design and Evaluation of Innovation Policies in Developing countries (DEIP) is an intensive one-week course for policy makers in science, technology and innovation policy in developing countries.

The programme aims to meet the growing demand from developing countries for support in analysing the latest technological developments and designing appropriate responses and policies tailored to their specific development contexts.

The target population of the course consists of senior and middle level officials of Ministries of Science and Technology, Ministries of Industry, Ministries of Economic Affairs and other technology supporting institutions as well as representatives from the private sector involved in science and technology policy issues

The course focuses on the theory and practice of innovation policy, on policy design, policy implementation, on the measurement and monitoring of innovative performance and on the evaluation of the outcomes of innovation policies.

The course was first offered in 2004 and has since been held in more than 15 developing countries around the world, including Thailand, India, Jordan, Argentina, Mauritius, Nigeria, Uruguay and El Salvador. The course now has some 800 alumni.

Courses are planned jointly with host organizations in developing countries. Applications for the organization of a course can be sent to the secretary of the training courses:
