I Definition
  • STP, Organized resources a country has for the application of S&T
  • Involving
          • Human resources
          • Financial resources
          • Informational resources
          • Material resources
  • Efficiently managed to achieve maximum benefits
ii usefulness of stp survey
II. Usefulness of STP Survey
  • STPs primarily a policy making and management tool in R&D and STS
  • Monitor the evolving scientific and technological potential at the institutional or individual R&D unit
  • Gathers information at micro level and thereby supply accurate information for policy makers
slide4
Explore the characteristics of the national scientific and technological potential
  • The flow of national S&T budget from the sources
  • The scientific research activities
  • The requirements for scientific and technological research based on priority objectives
  • The coherence of research activities in r/n to socioeconomic development
  • The production of R&D and STS units
iii stp users
III STP Users
  • Primarily specialists or government bodies responsible for S&T
  • National statistics organizations
  • International organization responsible for promoting scientific and technological cooperation eg. UNESCO
  • R&D or STS units (for managing scientific and technological activities)
  • Development planners for consultation in the application of new scientific and technological knowledge
data on resources of r d and sts units
Data on resources of R&D and STS Units
  • Data to be collected at the unit level
  • Level of R&D projects and STS activities
  • 4.1 Human Resources
  • Scientists and engineers
      • Completed education at the third level (awarded degree)
      • Received third level non university education but nationally recognized
      • Acquired professional experiences that is nationally recognized
      • Students preparing doctoral thesis
  • Technicians
      • Received vocational or technical educations (diploma)
      • Two years specialized technical studies
slide7
Auxiliary Personnel
    • Persons whose work is directly associated with the performance of S&T
  • The human resources measured in
    • Number of persons engaged in R&D

-The Volume of working time devoted to R&D

    • Full time equivalent
slide8
Utilization of data on HR
      • Classification by diplomas or degrees obtained
      • Classification by scientific/technological fields
      • Classification by age, sex and organizations

4.2 Financial resources

      • Classification by type of expenditures
        • Current expenditures
        • Labor expenditures
        • Capital expenditures

        • Foreign grant
        • Foreign loan
        • Own fund
        • Endowment fund
      • Classification by type of R&D activity
        • Fundamental research
        • Applied research
        • Experimental development
slide9
4.3 Material resources
      • buildings, land, experimental stations and major equipment
      • Major equipment - apparatus, machinery and equipment of significant value (>$5,000)

4.4 Informational resources

      • Scientific and technological documentation (books, periodicals, microfiches etc)
      • No of R&D or STS units possessing their own library
      • No of subscriptions in R&D
  • S&T Indicators
      • Assess scientific and technological capacity
      • Monitor the progress, evaluate the performance
      • Forecast the future trends
      • International comparisons among different countries
      • Rate of change for any given country
slide10
Manpower
        • The number of scientists and engineers (per million population, Nigeria 15 (1987) and South Africa 1031 (1993)
        • Distribution among different functions R&D, educational, public and private
        • Students enrollment in higher education
  • Expenditure
        • Total expenditure on S&T
        • Expenditure per discipline
