The IPP includes a data visualisation tool containing the main available indicators relevant to a country’s innovation performance. Indicators are sourced primarily from the OECD and the World Bank, as well as from other sources of comparable quality.
The tool provides the ability to customise the selection of comparator countries and time periods, to draw various types of attractive tables, charts and maps, and to export the data in a variety of formats.
The IPP’s Communities of Practice (CoPs) provides live and interactive spaces where you can participate in events, learn about projects and topics related to innovation policy, contribute to blogs and discussions and share documents. Welcome!
Innovation Policy: A Guide for Developing Countries
This volume, prepared by the World Bank Institute (WBI), presents a conceptual framework for understanding and learning about the principles of innovation policies and programs in various policy contexts, with an emphasis on low- and medium-income countries. It is intended primarily for policy-making communities in charge of technology, industry, science, and education, as well as economics and finance—indeed, government as a whole, since innovation policy entails, by its very nature, a whole-of-government approach. The book contains a set of distinct and complementary chapters and provides both policy principles and a host of examples from countries at various levels of development.
