The project implements the goals of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme “Europe in a Changing World: inclusive, innovative and reflective societies”. As its name indicates, REITER 3 is the third phase of a project that originally started in 2016 and that has the overarching goal of contributing to the monitoring and assessment of research and innovation (R&I) policies in Europe and beyond. It does this by surveying countries on their R&I policies, linking the collected policy data with other information (including statistics and other databases), and providing open data services through a dedicated web portal, the STIP Compass (http://stip.oecd.org). REITER 3 will maintain and update this infrastructure, and will aim to extend its uses and user base through new topic-based analysis and web services. Specifically, in a first part, the project will renew and upgrade STIP Compass databases and re-design the website’s graphical user interfaces. Among other things, this will will involve administering the 2021 edition of the EC-OECD STIP Survey. The project will also raise data quality, ensure linked data is up-to-date, revise and deepen taxonomies, and make the data accessible in STIP Compass. In a second part, the project will expand the uses and user base of STIP Compass by collecting data on and analysing topics that are high-priority for policymakers and analysts (such as the Covid-19 crisis and the climate emergency), and surfacing this in dedicated topic portals. This topic focus will make STIP Compass more relevant, raise its profile and reputation, and further incentivise countries to provide high quality data. Overall, the project’s overarching goal is to enhance the evidence base for R&I policies, which should in turn contribute to better national and European R&I policy and programme design.
