Key messages

For two decades now, the UNESCO Science Report series has been mapping science, technology and innovation (STI) around the world on a regular basis. Since STI do not evolve in a vacuum, this latest edition summarizes the evolution since 2010 against the backdrop of socio-economic, geopolitical and environmental trends that have helped to shape contemporary STI policy and governance.

Key messages are:

Today, there are fewer grounds than in the past to deplore a simple „North-South“ divide in research and innovation

Science is becoming more mobile 

Science powers commerce – but not only 

A growing tendency for governments and firms to invest in sustainable technologies
