This article deals with importance of the survey of research and scientific activities and the existing mechanisms in this regard. The first part of the article is a review of the literature of technological change measurement. In this part, theoretical principles of technological changes are discussed. Also we will deal with measurement of research and development as the oldest indicator of research and scientific activities and, then considering the flows and defect in the measurement of research and development, as well as, nonlinear realities of modern economics, innovation survey is introduced as the latest mechanism for technological activities. In the second part of the present article, an appropriate framework for innovation survey at national level is proposed through the use of field research. Have, first of all, considering the potentials and capabilities of each of the current innovation surveys at national level, the appropriate approach is adopted; then through the direct approach of technology policy classification, the status of innovative activities in the Iran is determined.
