What is SPIN?

SPIN is a new and revolutionary tool for decision-makers and STI policy experts, developed by the Science Policy Programmeof the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The SPIN concept is based on a recently designed methodology for the standardization and systematization of data in science, technology and innovation policies, and consists of a cluster of six databases coupled to innovative graphic and analytic tools.

Why SPIN?

Celebrating its sixty years, the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science in LAC seeks to consolidate its regional function as Clearing House for Science Policy Information. SPIN is therefore part of a regional information strategy that combines this platform with the new Series of Science Policy Studies and Documents in LAC (Vol. I and II available on www.unesco.org.uy and –of course- on SPIN).
