In a <a href="http://irps.ucsd.edu/assets/001/503998.pdf">new report</a>, Peter F. Cowhey and Michael Kleeman (University of California San Diego) take an in-depth look at the impact that cloud computing will have on India, Mexico and South Africa given their respective policies, technologies, and resources. They argue that the increase in cloud computing globally will allow developing economies to become more competitive, boost job creation, and better deliver government services. &nbsp;In addition, the growth in cloud computing will bolster South-South commerce and drive more investment in broadband networks. Join ITIF for a panel discussion with Peter Cowhey on the growth of cloud computing, its impact on developing economies, and the policies that governments should pursue to realize the benefits of cloud computing.&nbsp;</p><div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 3468,3505 </div> </div> </div> Developing Economies Internet Thu, 08 Nov 2012 14:30:00 +0000 afearon 3468 at http://www.itif.org The Global Innovation Policy Index http://www.itif.org/events/global-innovation-policy-index <div class="field field-type-text field-field-enablereg"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable Registration </div> </div> </div> <p>Countries worldwide are engaged in a fierce race for global innovation advantage. The leading countries have implemented innovation strategies that coordinate their policies towards trade and foreign direct investment, science and R&amp;D, information and communications technology, intellectual property rights, government procurement, tax, and education and high-skill immigration in an integrated approach designed to drive economic growth through innovation. However, to maximize global innovation, countries will have to implement these policies in ways that maximize their innovation capacity without distorting global trade. To accomplish this, countries’ policies must be predicated on transparent, non-discriminatory, market-based principles that embrace both global standards and the free flow of talent, capital, information, products, services, and technologies.</p><p><em>The Global Innovation Policy Index</em>, produced by ITIF in conjunction with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, assesses the effectiveness of the innovation policies of 55 countries using 84 indicators grouped into seven core innovation policy areas: 1) trade and foreign direct investment; 2) science and R&amp;D; 3) domestic market competition; 4) intellectual property rights; 5) information and communications technology; 6) government procurement; and 7) high-skill immigration. The Index, which ranks almost all EU, OECD, APEC, and BRIC economies, categorizes countries as either upper tier, upper-mid tier, lower-mid tier, or lower tier on each of the seven core innovation policy areas and overall, and highlights best practices in innovation policy development amongst these countries that other nations can learn from.</p><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-event-related-publication"> <div class="field-label">Related Report (Publication):</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/publications/global-innovation-policy-index">Global Innovation Policy Index</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 2797,2929,2927 </div> </div> </div> Competitiveness Developing Economies Intellectual Property Trade Thu, 08 Mar 2012 14:00:00 +0000 afearon 2797 at http://www.itif.org The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Innovation Policy http://www.itif.org/events/good-bad-and-ugly-innovation-policy <div class="field field-type-text field-field-enablereg"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable Registration </div> </div> </div> <p>An increasing number of countries think achieving economic growth through technology exports is preferable to doing so by raising domestic productivity levels through innovation, particularly by leveraging information technology.
