Extract

Innovation indicators are part of the policy process and measurement activities provide the statistics that become the indicators. This handbook has covered many of the issues related to measuring the activity of innovation, producing and presenting the indicators, and, then, using them. In Part VI, some evolving subjects were presented. In this chapter the first section addresses issues that are ongoing in indicator production and use. Then there is a discussion of developments anticipated in the short and in the longer term.
