Manual 2018: Guidelines for Collecting, Reporting and Using Data on Innovation.
The Measurement of Scientific, Technological and Innovation Activities
"What is innovation and how
should it be measured? Understanding the scale of innovation activities, the
characteristics of innovative fi rms and the internal
and systemic factors that can infl uence innovation is a prerequisite for the pursuit and
analysis of policies aimed at fostering innovation. First published in 1992,
the Oslo Manual is the international reference guide for collecting and using
data on innovation. In this fourth edition, the manual has been updated to take
into account a broader range of innovation-related phenomena as well as the
experience gained from recent rounds of innovation surveys in OECD countries
and partner economies and organisations". p.
