Science and Technology Outlook 2012

OECD Science, Technology and Industry Outlook 2012

Summary in English


• Short term shocks – linked to the economic crisis – and long term shocks – environmental, demographic and

societal – have put OECD economies before unprecedented challenges.

• Governments are mobilising all policy domains to design appropriate responses for reaching strong and

sustainable growth.

• While being under extremely stringent budgetary constraints, governments must seize the opportunities offered by

the Internet and global markets, they must mobilise the main assets of their countries – human capital, knowledge

capital, creativity.

• In this agenda, innovation policies are given a pivotal role, which they can fulfill only if they adapt to this new

context: they need relevance, coherence and inclusiveness, for achieving efficiency and effectiveness.
