Research Management

In the early 1960s, a series of seminars in Menars, Strobl and Hornbeck enabled scientists in charge of research institutes or their immediate deputies to exchange views and experience in the research management field. The OECD's Committee for Scientific Research decided to publish this booklet dealing with the synthesis of ideas of the seminars, as well as with a summary of the research manager's responsibilities, means and methods. Alain Pons was at the time a consultant to OECD.


The OECD produces internationally agreed instruments, decisions and recommendations to promote rules of the game in areas where multilateral agreement is necessary for individual countries to make progress in a globalised economy. These are underpinned by a wealth of detailed analysis and data, accessible electronically and as publications.

pdf2005 Internationalisation of R&D

227.24 Kbytes

Internationalisation of R&D is providing new opportunities for businesses to draw on local strengths and specialisations on a global scale. This brief argues that the commercial reasons for drawing on an international research base are concerned
primarily with business strategy and a capacity to address changing business objectives. The resulting global trade in knowledge and intellectual property and the strengthening of economies through R&D can provide economic benefits similar to other forms of trade. By the same token, companies and nations will find traditional strengths challenged by others, so these gains will only be realised by those who are able to respond effectively to the competition.
