Compendium d'indicateurs de l'activité scientifique et technologique au Québec

The Compendium d’indicateurs de l’activité scientifique et technologique au Québec illustrates Québec’s situation in science, technology and innovation using a broad range of commented comparative statistical indicators.

The first part of the 2016 edition reports on the proceedings of two international meetings that took place in 2016: the OECD Blue Sky III Forum on Science and Innovation Indicators, and the 21st International Conference on Science and Technology Indicators. It also features an interview with Vincent Larivière, associate professor at the École de bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l’information of the Université de Montréal, who participated in both events.

The second part of the Compendium presents and analyzes new, revised or updated data on scientific and technological activity in Québec, grouped by chapter: human resources in science and technology, research and development, enterprise and employment dynamics, venture capital, and the use of advanced technologies in enterprises.
