The Need and the User

For public policy-making
• AOSTI will collect and review STI policies in member states and raise awareness of potential policy mixes and the impacts of such policies.
• Policy-makers will be able to use the AOSTI outputs to strengthen the tools for national, regional and continental strategic planning, support evidence-based policy-making, monitor and evaluate investments in STI. They will use the STI statistics produced by AOSTI to (i) respond to policy requests such as progress towards the target set by African countries to spend 1% of gross domestic product (GDP) on research and development R&D), (ii) make international comparisons of R&D and innovation performance across African countries and abroad and (iii) identify areas of innovation that nee policy support.
• Feedback on the usage of the statistics produced by AOSTI will assist AOSTI to continuously improve the quality and content of the African Innovation Outlook series and other information products.
