Annex A: Methodological Issues in the Development of Indicators of Innovation and Transfer in Environmental Technologies
Abstract:This book presents analyses of the determinants of environment‐related innovation ‐ assessing the relative importance of different factors (policy measures, market conditions, scientific capacity, etc.) on the rate and pattern of innovation and the diffusion of these inventions in the world economy. Both of these strands of work depend on the availability of appropriate indicators. This annex reviews the methodological aspects of development of such indicators. It is intended to serve as a reference document for papers arising out of this work.
