The OECD Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook 2018 mentions Slovenia's Smart Specialisation Strategy, 19 November 2018

The OECD Science, Technology and Innovation Outlook 2018 published the twelfth edition, notably the opportunities and challenges related to enhanced data access, the impacts of artificial intelligence on science and manufacturing, and the influence of digitalisation on research and innovation.

The report also discusses the shortcomings of current policy measures, how the Sustainable Development Goals are re-shaping STI policy agendas, and the need for new - more flexible and agile - approaches to technology governance and policy design.

Report explicitly mentions Slovenia’s Smart Specialisation Strategy, which includes Industry 4.0 as one of the three key priority areas for action. It highlights the need to optimise and digitalise production processes, and to apply a range of enabling technologies (e.g. robotics,

nanotechnologies and modern production technologies for materials) to specific priority areas (e.g. smart buildings, the circular economy and mobility).
