Oecd‘s outlook: a glance at science, technology and innovation

'The Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook 2012', published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (Oecd), draws on the most recent empirical and analytical work in the areas related to innovation and innovation policy. It makes use of member and non-member country responses to the biennial Sti outlook policy questionnaire which was filled out also on the basis of the contribution of various Cnr researchers. It points out the Oecd's recent efforts towards the development of more experimental Sti indicators.

This new edition is a collective effort, the first ever on this scale, and takes a horizontal approach, co-ordinated by the Country Studies and Outlook Division of the Oecd Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry. It is produced under the guidance of Dominique Guellec, Sandrine Kergroach served as the overall co-ordinator.

It covers issues that are high on the Sti policy agenda in light of the current financial and economic crisis, fiscal budgetary constraints and major global and societal challenges, such as green growth, ageing societies, economic and inclusive development.

The focus is on national Sti priorities, policies and programmes introduced between 2010 and 2012. The new Outlook offers insights into national innovation systems: their structural characteristics, their Sti performance benchmarked against selected harmonised indicators and recent important national Sti policy developments. Moreover, with over 300 Sti-related indicators, the outlook's statistical framework has been radically expanded.

The poor performance of Italy is reflected by the indicators shown on pages 328-301 of the report.
