Summary Annotation The world's economies are rebounding from the Great Recession with varying degrees of success. International competition from new players is eroding the lead of more established economies. And environmental pressures are calling into question the sustainability of our development models over the next decades.The latest edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard provides the statistical information necessary to define effective responses to these challenges. It reveals how countries are tackling these issues individually and which approaches are working and points to ways innovation can help solve environmental and social problems.The book builds on the OECD's 50 years of indicator development to present major world trends in knowledge and innovation. It analyzes a wide set of indicators in science, technology, globalization, and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China, and South Africa). It includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest as well as the latest figures for research and development, foreign direct investments, risk capital, and technology-related trade.
