Joint launch webinar: UNECE Sub-regional Innovation Policy Outlook 2020 - Georgia and Innovation for Sustainable Review of Georgia

16 December 2020
Zoom Geneva Switzerland

Introduction

The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) has been working closely with the Government of Georgia on the Sub-regional Innovation Policy Outlook (IPO) and the Innovation for Sustainable Development Review of Georgia (I4SDR). The objective of this webinar is to present, discuss and elaborate on the findings and recommendations in these two forthcoming UNECE publications with Georgian innovation stakeholders, international experts, and the UNECE secretariat.

The UNECE Sub-regional Innovation Policy Outlook (IPO) 2020, a pilot initiative and flagship publication, supports efforts in the EESC region through a systematic, comprehensive, and comparative assessment of the scope, quality, and effectiveness of innovation policies, institutions and processes. The results can inform policy dialogue, reform processes, joint initiatives, donor-funded programming, investment and support the transition to a circular economy.

The UNECE Innovation for Sustainable Development Review of Georgia takes a deeper, country-specific look at the actors and dynamics of the innovation system, mechanisms for innovation governance, and the range and effectiveness of support mechanisms in place or underway. This includes both a broad overview and an in-depth examination of specific areas: industry-science linkages, innovation-enhancing procurement, and private sector dynamics. On this basis, the review provides a detailed set of recommendations for policy and institutional reform and innovation, including measures to further mainstream a broad sustainable development perspective across policy areas related to enabling and promoting innovation.

These initiatives have been financed by the Government of Sweden.
