    strategies but also to adopt and develop nationally relevant STI indicators to measure the
    status and performance of STI for sustainable development.
  • APCTT-ESCAP could assist member states to prioritize and carry out diagnosis of
    identified sectoral innovations systems and their STI strategy development.
  • APCTT-ESCAP could undertake studies on comparison of regional or sub-regional STI
    in selected sectors in cooperation with relevant ESCAP Divisions and Sub-Regional
    Offices (SROs).
  • APCTT-ESCAP’s on-line mechanisms could be used to share information on open
    innovation practices, business models and case studies.
