The OECD's biennial publication of the Science, Technology and Industry Outlook "OECD STI Outlook" reviews key global trends in science, technology and innovation (STI) policies and performance in OECD countries and other major international economies. Through comparative analysis, it informs policy makers about recent and anticipated changes in global patterns of STI and their possible implications for national science and innovation policies.
Since 2015 the OECD and the European Commission pursue a joint approach in support of innovation policy through their "International Survey on Science, Technology and Innovation Policies". Unique in nature, coverage and scope, this common survey streamlines data collection and develops a coordinated approach in support of better informed innovation policy making. Its results feed into the country-based policy information in the STI Outlook.
