Innovation, science and technology

Available in: EnglishEspañolFrançaisPortuguês

Technological development is the ultimate driver of long-term economic growth. However, the countries of the region continue to suffer from structural lag in the dual dimensions of productivity and the embedding of technological progress. Innovation policies must be combined with science and technology policies to efficiently unite the efforts of companies, governments and academic sectors. This will strengthen national innovation systems and link them with the main trends in the global economy.
