Future Directions for National Reviews of Science, Technology and Innovation in Developing Countries (2006)
Workshop Report, 23-24 April 2003, Paris, France

idrc_unesco.jpg National reviews of science, technology, and innovation are designed to help chart a course that encourages systems of scientific enquiry and broadens the engagement of scientific evidence in the policymaking process.

The methods used for these reviews have varied between countries and among the agencies involved. To learn from past experiences, a blend of 60 representatives from 12 developing countries and international organizations discussed the impacts of previous science and technology reviews, studied how ongoing national assessments had been designed and were being implemented, and collective had been designed and were being implemented, and collectively deliberated on how future reviews might be enhanced. The organisations represented at the workshop included the World Bank, Sida, UNCTAD, OECD, and the Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD).
