Science, Technology and Innovation Policy

© EtiAmmos /

Science, technology, and innovation (STI) have the power to transform societies by providing solutions on how to eradicate poverty, improve social and economic conditions, increase resilience to natural hazards, and preserve natural resources for future generations.

To tap into this transformative power, countries need to mobilize STI by putting into place appropriate STI systems, and creating close links between science, policy and society.

UNESCO, the main UN agency working within the field of STI policy, has over 50 years of experience accompanying countries to strengthen their STI systems, and advocating the importance of placing STI at the heart of national strategies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
