International Survey and Database on Science, Technology and Innovation Policies

Starting in 2015, the OECD and the European Commission are pursuing a joint approach in support of innovation policy analysis, with a common survey and database on science, technology and innovation (STI) policies, unique in their nature, coverage and scope.

The STIP Survey

The former OECD Science, Technology and Industry Outlook Policy questionnaire has become the new European Commission/OECD international survey on Science, Technology and Innovation Policies (STIP).

In its coverage, the survey expands on the OECD STI Outlook Policy Questionnaire and also includes questions relevant to the EU's Research and Innovation policy agenda.
This will bring coverage to 50 countries, including emerging economies (e.g. Brazil, the People's Republic of China, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation, and South Africa), and non-OECD EU Member States.
Taken together, countries covered in the STIP survey and database account for an estimated 97% of global R&D (Source: OECD STI Outlook 2014)

The STIP Database

The joint European Commission/OECD STIP database is a qualitative database of national policies and governance arrangements in support of science, technology and innovation policy design, implementation and evaluation. It provides thematic and country-specific access to a broad variety of information, including programme descriptions, typologies of policy instruments, target populations, sector- or technology-orientation, budgets, evaluation results, and links to official websites and to a wealth of national reports and documents.
