Title Using Science and Technology Indicators to Support Knowledge-based Economies Series Title United Nations University Policy Brief Volume/Issue No. 11 Publication Date 2006 Place of Publication Maastricht Publisher UNU-MERIT Pages 8 Language eng Abstract Statistical information is essential for understanding and appreciating the key contribution of science and technology (S&T) within knowledge-based economies. Quantitative indicators based on these statistics help measure, monitor and benchmark the performance of well- developed S&T systems in advanced industrialized countries. Many question whether the existing indicators have equal relevance for less developed countries. This Policy Brief reviews recent trends and highlights key advantages of the applications associated with these indicators for strategic management and policymaking within developing countries.
