STIP Compass is a joint initiative of the European Commission (EC) and the OECD that aims to collect together in one place qualitative and quantitative data on national trends in science, technology and innovation (STI) policy.
Development of Principles for Responsible Innovation in Neurotechnology
Recommendation on Responsible Innovation in Neurotechnology
The first international standard in this domain. It aims to guide governments and innovators to anticipate and address the ethical, legal and social challenges raised by novel neurotechnologies while promoting innovation in the field.
Responsible innovation in neurotechnology enterprises
This document is the result of analytical work on the opportunities and challenges of implementing responsibility frameworks into neurotechnology translation at major brain research initiatives and in the private sector.
Enabling responsible innovation in neurotechnology
Thanks to groundbreaking developments in science and neurotechnology, scientists are closer than ever to unlock the mysteries of the brain. In this article, David Winickoff explores how governments might foster responsible innovation in neurotech.
The OECD organised a series of two webinars entitled “Carbon management policies: Global practices in sustainability indicators and assessment”. This report details the findings from these workshops, to inform a more in-depth analysis of policy issues around the bioeconomy and carbon economies.
The bioeconomy and circular economy have gained political traction over the past decade. While there are synergies to be exploited, there are also potential misalignments. Read the OECD's insights and policy considerations on the bioeconomy and circular economy for a more sustainable future.
Meeting Policy Challenges for a Sustainable Bioeconomy
This publication investigates key aspects surrounding the sustainability of bioeconomy development, such as the use of biomass as feedstock for future production, the design and construction of biorefineries and the use of biotechnologies.
Collaborative platforms for converging technologies
Collaborative platforms for emerging technology: Creating convergence spaces
Governments, together with partners in industry and civil society, are developing experimental forms of collaborative platforms to provide better linkages between research and innovation, and to promote the development and use of emerging technology. This report analyses 33 case studies from key fields of emerging technology.
Building and sustaining collaborative platforms in genomics and biobanks for health innovation
Genomic and biobank collaborative platforms hold significant promise for the development of new discoveries and therapies. This paper explores the complex technical, legal and business challenges arising from genomics and biobanks, and brings together policy ideas and best practices.
Collaborative platforms for innovation in advanced materials
Based on evidence from 12 case studies, this report characterises governance mechanisms of collaborative platforms for advanced materials such as terms of funding, access, and IP policy and explores how they can create different kinds of value.
The S&T Policy 2025 project aims to help policymakers reorient STI systems towards global challenges like climate change. The project seeks to support policy learning on how countries can direct and coordinate their STI policy mixes towards transition goals, and how they can develop and use strategic intelligence to inform their activities.
The OECD AI Policy Observatory is a tool at the disposal of governments and businesses that they can use to implement the OECD AI Principles.
The Observatory combines resources from across the OECD and its partners from all stakeholder groups. It facilitates dialogue and provides multidisciplinary, evidence-based policy analysis and data on AI’s areas of impact.
OECD countries perceive the need to not only innovate more, but well, and to make the innovation process more goal-oriented, inclusive and anticipatory. Engaging governance within the innovation process has the potential to embed public good considerations into technologies.
This OECD MOIP Toolkit is an explorable guide that helps policy makers design and implement Mission-oriented innovation policies. This toolkit aims to become the reference platform for all those who set up, implement or research and advise on mission-oriented innovation policies.
