The Role of Innovation in the Area of Development (Innovation and the Development Agenda)

This chapter presents the principal outcomes of two meetings held at the OECD in 2009 which focused on innovation and development as part of the cross-cutting work on the OECD Innovation Strategy. The first was a workshop, Innovation for Development: Converting Knowledge to Value, which was a joint OECD-UNESCO undertaking. The second was an expert meeting, Innovating Out of Poverty, initiated by the OECD Development Co-ordination Directorate (DCD). The chapter identifies areas for action to be taken and reviews work done since the meetings to rise to the challenge of putting innovation on the development agenda.
