OECD Working Party of National Experts on Science and Technology Indicators (NESTI)

What is NESTI?

The Working Party of National Experts on Science and Technology Indicators (NESTI) is in charge of monitoring, supervising, and co-ordinating statistical work on science, technology and innovation (STI), contributing to the development of indicators and quantitative analyses needed to meet the requirements and priorities of the Committee for Scientific and Technological Policy.

NESTI is one of the longest serving working groups of the OECD, with its existence pre-dating the creation of the OECD in 1962 when experts from several countries met to agree on standards on the measurement of research and development (R&D). This subsequently led to the first edition of the OECD Frascati Manual in 1963.
