The Innovation Policy Platform
Welcome to the Innovation Policy Platform
The IPP is a joint initiative between the OECD and the World Bank to facilitate knowledge exchanges and peer-to-peer learning through an interactive, comprehensive and up-to-date platform with cutting-edge knowledge on innovation policy.
The IPP sets out to help policy analysts and practitioners better analyse innovation systems and identify and prioritise good practice solutions. It mobilises a broad range of current knowledge and expertise on the design, implementation, and evaluation of policies that are appropriate to specific country needs and socio-economic conditions.
The IPP includes hundreds of webpages that summarise key issues in innovation policy, and link to the more detailed reports and statistics. These pages are also interlinked, navigating users to related topics of interest. In addition, the IPP provides searchable country profiles that provide users with snapshots of some of the main indicators characterising countries’ innovation performance. Access to and analysis of statistics is supported by an interactive visualisation tool that enables users to explore and download data.
At present, the Platform is in Beta version and will be evolving with feedback and comments from users. Additional features and content will also be added in due course.
We hope you find the Platform a useful and instructive tool in shaping the innovation policy landscape in your respective regions.
