Reviewing innovation mechanisms to support a sustainable ocean economy
by Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) (Intergovernmental organization)
The OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) leads an original programme of work on the Ocean Economy and Innovation with the objective to provide decision-makers with an improved toolbox to foster innovation for harnessing the ocean economys potential in a responsible and sustainable way. It builds on the findings from a major OECD project on The Future of the Ocean Economy: Exploring the prospects for emerging ocean industries to 2030. This two-year activity (2017-18) led by the OECD Secretariat and supported by a dozen countries, includes a series of expert workshops, research on new OECD indicators, and innovation policy discussions with ocean-related communities around the world (ministries, agencies, academia, foundations, NGOs and the private sector).
Time-frame: January 2017 - December 2018
