Innovation Survey Results 


Results of the first UIS innovation data collection


The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) has released a new report presenting the main results of the first global innovation data collection.


The aim of the survey was to meet the growing need for comparable data on innovation in the manufacturing sector, which is an important driver of economic growth. It was uniquely designed to reflect the priorities and contexts of countries at different stages of development.


The survey gathered data from 65 countries, including several in Africa, in order to produce a range of internationally-comparable indicators to inform policies at national and international levels.


The new report examines the innovation process, identifying similarities and differences between income groups. The report also presents the different types of innovation, by manufacturing industry and size class, and examines data on the activities that may be fostering or hampering innovation. For example, to what extent do enterprises have access to the technology, knowledge or funds required to stimulate innovation in the development of business processes or new products?


The UIS worked closely with its partners to collect the data and release the innovation database, including the African Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators (ASTII) Initiative by the AU/NPCA, Eurostat (Statistical Office of the European Union), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Ibero-American Network of Science and Technology Indicators (RICYT).
