OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation

The OECD’s Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation (DSTI) aims to develop a better understanding of where our economies and societies are today, and where they are going tomorrow. We deliver evidence-based policy advice across a vast range of topics, including those at the boundaries of our scientific and technological understanding, and how digital shifts like “big data”, earth observation and digital platforms are changing our world.
