    Why OECD Work on Innovation and Technology Policy Matters

    The OECD provides a framework for fostering technology-driven growth through technological advancement by conducting research, providing policy analysis, and fostering international collaboration. The Organization explores topics such as the impact of biotechnology and nanotechnology on production, and the consequences of “big data” and digital platforms globally while aiming at creating new modes of partnerships with stakeholders, private finance and public funding, and infrastructure enabling technologies.

    How Business Engages with the OECD on Innovation and Technology

    Our Innovation and Technology Committee provides private sector expertise on science, technology, and innovation policy initiatives conducted at the OECD. We address issues from the impacts of synthetic biology to trends in research and the policy framework for emerging technologies. The Committee meets on an ad-hoc basis throughout the year and is invited to represent Business at OECD during the different meetings of the OECD Committee on Science, Technology and Innovation and related Working Parties twice a year.
