The European Commission's Directorate-General for Information Society and Media has launched a call for tenders to use performance indicators in monitoring the implementation of information and communication technologies (ICT) research in the Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes (FP6/FP7).
The work aims to:
- develop a monitoring system to collect data related to performance indicators adopted in the activity-based management (ABM) context (for 2008 onwards);
- cleaning up the data collected in 2006, 2007, 2008;
- performing a pilot assessment of the performance of ICT research through state-of-the-art scientometric approaches and methodologies such as patent analysis, bibliometrics, co-patenting, co-publication, citation analysis, etc. This will also include some 'network analysis'-based work to analyse the effectiveness of the ICT research collaboration links.
