An evening with an OECD analyst: The next production revolution March 1, 2018 - 7:56am

Between now and 2030, innovations such as 3D printers, robotics, new materials and data-led manufacturing will have fascinating implications for production. The more governments and firms understand, the better placed they will be to address the risks and reap the benefits.

On 6 February,  Alistair Nolan from @OECDinnovation was at the American Library in Paris to discuss the OECD report The Next Production Revolution: Implications for Governments and Business

Revised proposal for the revision of the statistical definitions of biotechnology and nanotechnology March 1, 2018 - 7:54am

Agreement on a harmonised application of clear statistical definitions of technologies is pertinent to the delineation of technology fields both with regard to each other and within the context of wider economic developments.

This document revises the OECD's statistical definition of biotechnology and proposes the adoption of a statistical definition of nanotechnology in the same format.

Global value chains and centrality: Mapping key hubs, spokes and the periphery March 1, 2018 - 7:52am

This paper uses “centrality” metrics to reflect position within global value chains. Central sectors reflect those that are highly connected (both directly and indirectly) and influential within global production networks, whereas peripheral sectors exhibit weak linkages and are less influential. Applying these metrics to OECD ICIO data reveals that there have been profound changes in the structure of GVCs over the period 1995-2011. 

Bridging the rural digital divide March 1, 2018 - 7:51am

What are the recent policy and technology approaches to bridging the digital divide in rural and remote areas in OECD countries? Experience in OECD countries with fibre optics, coaxial cable, copper, fixed and mobile wireless, satellites and hybrid approaches, as well as with emerging technologies, are used to illustrate some of the technological trends discussed in this paper. It also includes a summary of common challenges and good practices to bring improved communication services to individuals and communities in rural and remote regions.
