How are a country’s achievements in innovation defined and measured, and how do they relate to economic performance? What are the major features, strengths and weaknesses of a nation’s innovation system? How can government foster innovation?
The OECD Reviews of Innovation Policy offer a comprehensive assessment of the innovation system of individual OECD member and non-member countries, focusing on the role of government. They provide concrete recommendations on how to improve policies that affect innovation performance, including R&D policies. Each review identifies good practices from which other countries can learn.
