The focus of the workshop is to discuss the practice, the results and the use of ST&I policies evaluation in Latin America in the process of feed-backing the policy cycle (formulation and implementation of public policies).

Context: The Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Policy Evaluations in Latin America (LA) Project, that is part of a broader initiative named Science and Innovation Policy Evaluations Repository (SIPER) – coordinated by Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIoIR) – and the current research oneconomic catching-up, technological upgrading and policies aspects related to the field of economics of innovation.

SIPER: It is a central source of knowledge on science and innovation policy evaluations. Its aim is twofold: (i) to provide on-line access to a unique collection of policy evaluations, located at a single location; and (ii) to allow policy learning by providing an informed analysis of the database contents that is both searchable by policy makers and other stakeholders and which provides the basis for additional academic analysis.
