Major science and technology-driven changes in the production and distribution of goods and services are occurring, with far-reaching consequences for productivity, skills, incomes, human well-being and the environment. Science and technology policies are central to these developments. Policy designs greatly influence the benefits from developments in production. This presentation will elaborate findings from two years of research at the OECD examining the steps that governments need to take.
