GO-SPIN is a Global Observatory of Science, Technology and Innovation Policy Instruments supported by UNESCO.

This is an evening cocktail event during the Natural Sciences Commission-week of the General Conference of UNESCO, to feature the launch of GO-SPIN country profile on Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation. This is based on the project on Capacity-Building in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Policy in Africa funded by the Government of Spain and coordinated by the Division of Science Policy and Capacity-Building. These country profiles will form the basis of a new e-publication series in the STI policy series.
Botswana GO-SPIN profile will be the first country to be launched in this event, and will be presided over by the UNESCO Director-General, a representative from the government of Botswana and a representative from the government of Spain.

There will be a screen display of the online GO-SPIN country profiles with provisions to do interactive searches on particular items and sections of the country profile.

The event will be followed by a cocktail in front of room IX at Fontenoy.
