1 Introduction to UIS data collection tools and guidelines. SEMINAR – WORKSHOP ON SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION INDICATORS Phnom Penh, Cambodia Nov 2008

2 lAfter UIS moved from Paris to Montreal in 2001, the first thing that the S&T team has done was a worldwide consultation (review). We have asked the countries (data producers and users) what they expected from us. lThe result was the S&T strategy. Basically, most of the respondents expressed interest in continuing our time series in R&D as their first priority. lThis questionnaire was created in 2004, to be launched every two years (lack of resources, respecting countries' capacity to produce data) lIts the third survey since in Montreal and every time, we have a section on the availability of additional data (last Section). The evolution of the questionnaire depends on the availability and the pertinence of the data to be collected. lCapacity building activities like this workshop are aimed to have an impact on both the quality and the quantity of data we disseminate. lWe do have plans to start innovation surveys in a later date but since our resources are limited, for the time being we are concentrating in improving the quality of the existing survey S&T Questionnaire - Introduction

If you dont have the national figures, please provide information in the footnotes and, if possible, give estimated figures (please document it, footnotes). lYou know your country better than anyone else in UIS so the quality of you estimates tends to be better. lIf you do not have data, or if the category is not applicable, please use the provided symbols (a,m,n,x).
