Comparing technological and scientific development: The knowledge society development barometer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The Knowledge Society Development Barometer is a globally unique instrument for measuring countries' technological and scientific expertise and development. Based on a ample literature on innovation and technological development, it consists of nine indicators providing index-type key values to measure the state of technology at a given moment. The barometer is based on models depicting society's development as it evolves from an information society via a knowledge society towards a knowledge-value society. Its data illustrate a transitional phase and give an overall impression of how far we have come in our journey to a knowledge-value society. Interestingly enough, reaching the knowledge-value society stage seems to correlate with a high GDP per capita and low unemployment rates.
