Online report on the results of the 2019 edition of EC-OECD STIP survey. The report uses interactive visualisations to describe the data, identifying recurrent national policy debates and key patterns in STI policy initiatives.
The STIP Compass monitoring tool systematically collects in a harmonised way quantititative and qualitative data on national STI policies. It addresses all areas of STI policy, including initiatives spread across different ministries and national agencies, with competence over domains as broad as research, innovation, education, industry, environment, labour, finance/budget, among others.
Data are gathered using the online questionnaire tool based on the Limesurvey open source software, which has been further tailored to allow the survey’s National Contact Point (NCP). The monitoring tool was implemented to allow countries to update the information provided in the survey on a continuous basis. The database is unique in its scope, nature and scale and has become a major international tool to monitor and analyse countries’ science and innovation policies.
