Econometric analyses and indicators on the impact of Research and Innovation


The project aims: (a) to provide statistical support for the development and update of indicators used by DG RTD to monitor development on science, technology and innovation; (b) to carry out statistical and econometric analysis in order to better understand the nature, needs and determinants of high-growth enterprises, as well as the policy responses and the framework conditions needed to facilitate the growth of companies in innovative sectors; (c) to explore the relationship between inward and outward foreign direct investment flows in R&D and framework conditions such as the tax system/tax incentives (R&D tax incentives in particular); (d) to provide econometric and statistical support on ad-hoc requests by DG RTD on the topics analyzed in this proposal; and (e) to carry out a Counterfactual Impact Evaluation study in order to evaluate the impact of DG RTD research funding schemes on the knowledge basis, innovation activities and economic performance of private enterprises. The project builds on work carried out in the context of the INNOVA MEASURE I (FP7, 2013-14) and INNOVA MEASURE II (H2020, 2015-17) projects.
