New blog on international governance of science, technology and innovation for global challenges

I have had the pleasure and honor of being chair of OECD’s steering group on the governance of science, technology and innovation for global challenges — STIG for short.

The project combined the skills of social researchers with the knowledge of savvy policy makers from many countries, including — among others — Germany, Austria, Korea, China, France, the UK, South Africa and Norway. The Germans initiated the project, which was also given strong support from the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

The project delivered its report this summer and recently the OECD also published a popular policy brief describing the findings and the recommendations.

Many policy makers and experts associated with STIG would now like to make the project more visible. Others have started planning more work in the area. In order to keep track of this work I have today set up a new blog called Beyond STIG. Visit the blog to read more about STIG, find links to the policy brief and the report and much more.
