OECD Working Party on Innovation and Technology Policy (TIP)

 

The OECD Working Party on Innovation and Technology Policy (TIP) provides evidence-based advice to countries to foster STI policies that enhance productivity and foster sustainable and inclusive knowledge-driven economic growth; strengthen public research institutions and their contributions to innovation and economic performance and foster the creation of science and technology-based firms. 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.

TIP projects (2017-18) (public release of policy recommendations by early 2019)

 

The digital transformation has changed the way economies work and innovation is organised. The OECD project ‘Digital and Open Innovation’ investigates whether and, if so, how digital transformation changes the rationales for innovation policy as well as the most appropriate instruments to foster vibrant innovation ecosystems.

To identify practical policy implications, the project reviews changing business models and new forms of innovation across sectors and different actors, including SMEs, start-ups and research institutions. It also analyses new forms of collaboration for innovation at local, national and global levels.
