Innovation is indispensable in creating shared prosperity and fostering sustainable growth. But how do we make innovation policies work? What do modern approaches to innovation policy require? Join us for a conversation with World Bank Group President Kim and OECD Secretary-General Ángel Gurría, as they share insights on the new World Bank-OECD publication, Making Innovation Policy Work: Learning from Experimentation. The event will include a presentation by the book authors, a moderated panel discussion and a Q&A session.
