The UNESCO Science Report was launched in 1993 under the name of World Science Report. Since then, UNESCO has published seven reports in the series. The UNESCO Science Report provides an assessment of the state of science and technology worldwide, providing insights and recommendations to foster innovation and address global challenges through STI. The primary objective of the UNESCO Science Report is to monitor and analyse the status of science, technology, and innovation (STI) around the world. It provides insights into the dynamics of science and technology development, policy trends, and the role of STI in addressing global challenges.
The Institute for Methods Innovation has been contracted by UNESCO to undertake a global consultation survey to collect and assess feedback from the target audience and relevant stakeholders of the UNESCO Science Report on the best way forward for 1) the next edition and 2) the longer-term future.
