Benchmarks of Our Innovation Future

Read the paper online.

This brief paper compares the United States with Europe and Asia in terms of a number of benchmarks relevant to science and technology and their use as motors of economic growth. While it does not mention UNESCO, it amply illustrates the increasing globalization of science and technology innovation. The United States once dominated high technology, but today it shares the field with European and Asian countries. The trends shown imply a growing need for UNESCO to help the U.S. network with the scientific and technological communities in other nations.

The report was published this month by the Task Force on the Future of American Innovation
