Celebrating the 50th Meeting of the TIP



TIP@50: What have we learnt? Where is innovation policy heading?

11 December 2017, Paris, OECD Headquarters 



The 50th meeting of the OECD Working Party on Innovation and Technology Policy (TIP) will be the occasion for an exceptional conference to take stock of the work conducted by the TIP and review major developments in innovation and technology policy. 

Past and present members of the TIP, government representatives, STI practitioners and leading experts will gather to discuss past achievements and critically ask what critical questions for the future are. 

A mix of plenaries and breakout sessions will allow for active exchange on a range of key themes:

  • Innovation policy for the sustainable development goals;
  • Science-industry linkages for innovation;
  • Innovation from a sectoral perspective;
  • Methodologies for the analysis of innovation and STI policy;
  • How is innovation being conducted?;
  • Design and implementation of innovation policy instruments. 

What is the TIP?

Established in 1993, the TIP is composed of government officials and country experts in the field of science, technology and innovation (STI) policy and meets twice per year. 

The main objective of the TIP is to provide evidence-based advice to countries to foster STI policies that enhance productivity and sustainable, knowledge-driven economic growth; facilitate the creation and diffusion of knowledge for both societal and economic goals; strengthen the contributions of public research to innovation; and foster the creation of science and technology-based firms.
