UNESCO: Monitoring Research and Development

Science and technology is one of the main drivers of economic growth. Given the rapid pace of technological change, governments need reliable and precise data on research and development (R&D).

The UNESCO Institute for Statistics has produced a series of guidelines and documents to better reflect the situation in developing countries.

The UIS produced a Technical Paper on Measuring R&D in Developing Countries, which was the result of a two-year consultation process. The document was presented to the OECD's Working Party of National Experts on Science and Technology Indicators (NESTI) and included as an annex to the Frascati Manual.

These resources are based on consultations with national statisticians, policymakers and recognized experts, as well as regional networks and organizations (see links below) specializing in the collection of R&D statistics.
