11 Innovation Policies (IP) in Arab Countries Some Arab countries have elaborated a form of Innovation Policy to improve their NIS Imbued with a technical vision and unclear links with broader socio-economic goals Distinct science, technology, innovation, ICT and entrepreneurship strategies co-exist. Better coordination is needed. Some countries have a broader national growth and development strategy that includes innovation. Concrete contribution and link between IP and national strategy should be strengthen.
12 Major IP challenges faced by Arab Countries Vision and Objectives are not always clearly specified. Education and Training Inadequate methods of learning High levels of educated unemployed & Low levels of VET Research and Development Mainly concentrated within PRI and Universities Broken link between R&D and socio-economic needs Regulatory Framework Low volumes (and quality) of FDI & intra-arab FDI Low levels of Patenting & Inefficient competition Support to Innovators Venture Capital and other early financing are still nascent Insufficient business services particularly for SMEs Monitoring and evaluation are not always performed
13 Proposed Framework for the Elaboration of Innovation Policy in the Arab Countries
14 Innovation Policy for the Arab Countries Encourage member countries to formulate innovation policies that promote the role of technology for inclusive economic growth and support the achievement of SDGs. Bridge the gap between Arab countries and many developed and developing countries that have made strides in technological and knowledge development and thus enhanced their economic growth. Provide Arab countries with a comprehensive framework to develop a national innovation system that supports economic growth and contributes to the achievement of the sustainable development goals.
15 ESCWA Framework for Innovation
16 Elaborating the IP vision (I) Spell out the what for question articulated around a limited set of strategic objectives Next, the by which means question address shortcomings and gaps in the country A third step relates to the NIS actors or, in simpler terms, the by whom question Formulate a vision and specific objectives for the which should be linked to other development objectives A set of well-defined targets and associated indicators. Should be elaborated at the highest political level
17 Elaborating the IP vision (II) Strategic priorities for the innovation policies of Arab countries should address a set of interdependent objectives: improve the relationship between the main actors of the NIS, advance an economic system that fosters innovation, improve the quality of human capital, deal with sustainable development and social issues, including gender, and encourage societal values that support risk-taking and entrepreneurship.
18 1st Pillar- Improving Education and Training Quality education requires a new approaches to build skills away from rote learning and memorization Student s well-being and development of their curiosity and critical thinking during the early stages of primary education is a must to nurture future innovators Develop Vocational Education Training (VET) at higher secondary and post-secondary level to address scarcity of mid-level or craft competencies Address Brain Drain issue with measures aimed at leveraging skilled expatriates
19 2 nd Pillar- Strengthening Research and Development Increasing the allocated budget for R&D at national level and at university level Open Science improve efficiency, avoid duplication of effort and enable more research on the same data Technology Transfer Offices (TTO) to manage this technology transfer of universities research Arab scientists should participate more actively in international research programs addressing issues of global concern Arab countries might consider research grants or incentives to support firm s R&D.
20 3 rd Pillar- Consolidating Regulatory Framework FDI flows: sharp fall from levels reached in Predictable and transparent regulatory and legal frameworks & simpler business-related procedures Public procurement: acquire foreign technologies and develop the demand side for local innovation - Procurement of innovative goods and services Patenting: strengthening the patent system, such as: - Transparent and accessible opportunities for opposing patents. Fair and transparent competition is still absent in the vast majority of Arab countries.
21 4 th Pillar- Supporting Innovators Business services through public-private partnership with private sector specialists to offer a range of business services to young innovative firms. Improve efficiency and impact of Incubation structures - Develop one-stop shop centralized information portals to SMEs Develop early stage financing of innovative firms. Clusters are important mechanisms that might create an effective innovation eco-systems.
22 Measures for implementations A high-level steering committee to ensure proper stewardship and arbitrate in case of conflict A mechanism to strengthen collaboration and interactions among various stakeholders An implementation agency with adequate budget and delegation of authority
23 Group Work Exercise What do you think is the most critical aspect of the Innovation Policy in your country?

Plans, road maps and integrated assessment STI maps and R&D road maps to agree on priority actions of the science and engineering communities. Putting technology at the service of inclusion Access to affordable, modern technology for everyone, especially in developing countries.

28 Arab Countries SDGs Priorities (I) First Arab Sustainable Development Report, 2015 Human Dignity and well-being Growth with little impact on human wellbeing. Unemployment remains the highest in the world Educational achievement not leading to employment Peace, governance and institutions Arab region is the least peaceful part of the world
29 Arab Countries SDGs Priorities (II) First Arab Sustainable Development Report, 2015 Sustainable and resilient societies Water productivity and irrigation efficiencies well below global averages Resource consumption increasing at unsustainable rates Implementation and Partnership for Sustainable Development Transform Arab region from mostly a user of technology to producer Improve statistical capacity in the Arab region in view of the anticipated 100+ global indicators for the SDGs

32 Innovation Policy and SDGs: the way ahead Address social economy when building an enabling environment for STI Malaysia In 2015, the Government of Malaysia launched the Malaysian Social Enterprise Blueprint , a threeyear road map for developing a social enterprise ecosystem, that seeks more impact-driven entrepreneurs who create a social and environmental as well as an economic impact.
33 Innovation Policy and SDGs: the way ahead Provide funding for social and environmentally relevant projects Indonesia Over the past two decades, Indonesia s Directorate General of Higher Education has initiated more than 20 schemes to fund university research and community service activities.

Model led by private sector s role needs to take account of the public sector s role (PPP). Private sector should operate in competitive and transparent environment.
36 Innovation Policy for Youth Employment in the AR Innovation Policy Job creation Government should enhance legal and regulatory framework to encourage innovation and R&D in private sector and promote the creation of start-ups and entrepreneurs. Government can invest in Innovation such as the development of innovative e-government services.

37 Innovation Policy for Youth Employment in the AR Economical objective Well designed employment policies and active labour market programs Active labour market policies (ALMPs) include employment services, career guidance, job counselling, labour market information and support for micro and small enterprises. ALMPs can help reintegrate youth who are in the forefront of regional developments.

Increased quality and relevance of education and training to adapt to a rapidly changing labour market Autonomy and independent thinking and capacity for lifelong learning Develop VET with active involvement of private sector
