Creating Our Common Future through Science, Technology and Innovation October 31, 2018 - 6:03am
Blog contributed by Choi Yanghee, Minister of Science, ICT and Future Planning, Republic of Korea; Chair of 2015 OECD Ministerial Meeting.

Topic 3 (Day 1) : Framework conditions for innovation: education and skills, a pro-productivity business environment, and global learning spillovers October 31, 2018 - 6:03am

  • How to reinforce skills for innovation and make higher education more in line with industry demands?
  • How could Brazil better leverage innovation (and the impact of other policies for innovation) through trade and FDI? What does international evidence say about the interplay between international trade & investment and innovation policy?
Topic 4 (Day 2) : Innovation and public policies: the role of science-industry collaboration, and how to ensure that science and technology development is as demand-driven as possible October 31, 2018 - 6:03am
  • What are the obstacles (regulatory and non-regulatory) to industry-science collaboration in Brazil? What policy and governance reforms are needed to improve the impact of Brazilian S&T investments on the economy?
  • To what extent do governance (and cultural) aspects and deficiencies in institutional incentives (regulatory frameworks) prevent investments in public research (S&T institutions) from having a meaningful impact on national innovation?
Topic 5 (Day 2) : Innovation and public policies: leveraging public investment through learning by monitoring for improved implementation October 31, 2018 - 6:03am
  • There is room to improve the effectiveness of policies for innovation. Brazil could improve policy learning and effectiveness through the more systematic adoption of M&E frameworks, which in addition to measuring the achievement of goals (effectiveness) and the efficiency of programs, would permit adjustments to made over time in implementation based on continuous learning of which programs and instruments work well and which work less well.
