Knowledge society barometer

Research output: Book/ReportReport

Abstract

The technology barometer is a globally unique instrument that measures the state of technological and scientific expertise and development in a given country. The barometer comprises 12 indicators that provide an index-type key value that measures the state of technology at a given time. The barometer is based on models depicting the development of society that see us evolving from an information society, through a knowledge society, towards a knowledge-value society. The barometer data thus illustrate a transitional phase and provide an overall image of how far we have come in our journey towards a knowledge-value society. At the same time, it also indicates how effectively the development in question complies with the principles of sustainable development.
