Abstract: 

This conceptual framework for measuring Science, Technology and Innovation Activities (STIA) consists of five elements: (1) Human Capital, (2) Infrastructure, (3) Diffusion & Transfer, (4) Innovation, and (5) Research & Development (R&D). These components can be broken down into two categories: investment in S&T capital (human and infrastructure) and investment in innovation (R&D and national innovation activities). Diffusion and transfer of knowledge and technology is a consequence of these investments. All of these have economic and social impacts.
